What's New at LAVC? Welcome to the reVitalization of Los Angeles Valley College...
Valley College is currently undergoing a $626 million renovation and building project to renovate existing buildings and build new sustainable buildings. Existing classroom buildings are being updated with new technology and energy efficient standards. In addition, all new campus structures are being built as LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) buildings.
It all began when the voters of Los Angeles approved Proposition A in 2001 and Proposition AA in 2003 to help improve college facilities at Los Angeles Valley College. Later, Los Angeles voters approved Measure J in 2008 to further improve college facilities and expand educational programs to meet the growing needs of the community.
In 2006, Valley College made history with the opening of its Maintenance and Operations / Sheriff's Station, which was the campus’ first new building in more than 30 years. The Maintenance and Operations / Sheriff’s Station was also heralded as the first LEED-certified building at a college in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD).
In the years that followed, the college updated many of its aging facilities and added several new buildings. Existing existing classrooms were redesigned with a fresh coat of paint, new furniture, energy efficient windows and smart-classroom equipment. In addition, the college's run-down bathrooms received a complete makeover.
In 2008, the college opened its Allied Health and Sciences Center, and a remodeled Pool Complex in the North Gymnasium. The Adapted Physical Education Center, which is a new gymnasium with specially modified exercise equipment for individuals with limited mobility, and a state-of-the-art Krupnick Media Arts Center (TV studio) opened in 2009. The beginning of Fall 2010 marked the opening of the Student Services Complex (pictured above) and a portion of the Child Development and Family Complex—the Child Development Center and Child Development Department buildings; the final part of the complex, the Family Resource Center, was completed in mid-2011. In Fall 2012, the college plans to open its new Library and Academic Resource Center.
Through the support of the voters of Los Angeles, Valley College will be able to continue to improve the campus and provide students with state-of-the-art facilities to help them reach their educational dreams. A list of Measure J construction projects include: a Media Arts and Performing Arts Center, Administration/Workforce Development building, a multipurpose Community Services Center, an athletic training facility, a new parking structure, a Monarch Center (student union), and a Planetarium building expansion.
