“Mt. San Jacinto Community College District has 80 acres earmarked for the campus on Clinton Keith Road in southern Wildomar. For the young city to host a higher-education venue for thousands of students would be a dream come true for some.”
“It’s going to be good for our city and I know it’s going to be good for the kids around here” City Councilman, Tim Walker
“It’s identified in our master plan as a high-growth area in the district. We are intentionally siting our campuses in strategic areas that have good (transportation) access and provide closs access to high population centers.” Superintendent/President, Roger Schultz
“I think it would be a huge boost for our economy, our students and our college-going rates.” Board of Trustees President, Ann Motte
“The community college district, forged an agreement with Riverside County officials earlier this year to purchase the county-owned land for $2.5 million, pending a review of the site for any insurmountable environmental issues.
The college is in process of completing an EIR (Environmental Impact Report) on this site. The plan of the board is to issue a letter of intent to the Chancellor Office referencing the site as a future campus and to complete a “needs study” to seek state approval of the site as campus “Center” which could take from 6 months to one year. FTES levels need to meet 500 FTES (full-time equivalent students) to become state approved. Once approved as a “Center”, the campus would qualify for $1 million dollars in operational funding every year and additional growth dollars in years when growth is provided from the state budget.
As Trustee, representing this area, I have worked very hard to acquire this site and I with your vote for re-election, I hope to be able to participate in the development of this new Technology/STEM campus to benefit our students and taxpayers.
I AM the experienced Trustee who understands the process and will work diligently to make this happen!
