First Batch of Old LAVC Bungalows Demolished on Campus
First Batch of Old LAVC Bungalows Demolished on Campus

LAVC finally waved goodbye to a few of its old 1950s bungalows on campus. Bungalows 50-52 were torn down in December 2018 to make way for a new thermal energy storage tank on campus. Dr. Endrijonas climb into a bulldozer to ceremoniously mark the beginning of the removal of the college's now-abandoned bungalows. A crowd of faculty and staff gathered in Lot H, and cheered once the bulldozer began leveling the bungalow structure to the ground. The remaining bungalows in the area are scheduled to be demolished at a later date.
