State Board set to vote on Bellingham Technical College building repair funding

December 06, 2023 by SBCTC Communications

OLYMPIA, Wash. — The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges at its regular business meeting Thursday is set to approve a request for emergency repair funding for Bellingham Technical College's Campus Center building. The request comes as engineers in July discovered structural deficiencies and closed the building. With the board's approval, the $22,678,000 project would be first on the college system's prioritized 2024 capital budget request to the Washington state Legislature.

The board is also set to hear a preview of the 2024 legislative session and the community and technical college system's priorities. Those priorities include a funding request to increase the number of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degrees offered by the colleges, supporting colleges as they comply with Washington state energy performance standards, major building projects at Lower Columbia College in Longview and Columbia Basin College in Pasco, and, if approved, Bellingham Technical College's Campus Center building.

The regular meeting is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. and adjourn at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 7. The meeting is open to the public and will be held on Zoom and streamed on TVW. The meeting agenda and background materials are posted on the State Board's website.
