Next Meeting: Thursday 12/10

Items on the agenda include water bottle charging stations, space allocation, updates, and signage.


The Facilities and Sustainability Committee currently meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month during the academic year.  All faculty, staff, administration, and students are welcome to attend and participate at the meetings. The Schedule for Fall Semester 2015 includes meetings on the following dates:

Thursday, 8/27

Thursday 9/24 (cancelled)

Thursday, 10/8 (in 405)

Thursday, 12/10

Agenda for 11/13:
  • Presentation by GSA on need for restroom changes/designations.
  • Candidate for classified professional to be committee co-chair: Nate Moore
  • Budget report on Measure B funds. What do we have in the kitty?
  • Water bottle stations
  • Stepping stones
  • Where, oh where will our health center go?



For the meeting in October we will discuss and decide  what action to take concerning the seismic condition of the breezeways and colonnades around campus. If you need a refresher, the presentations are posted on the website, or I would be happy to go over some of it with you. Also we'll get going on the water charging stations and prioritization.
President Sperling has decided to step down as co-chair of the committee. VP Matt Kritscher has volunteered to step in as the admin co-chair. Let me know if there are any comments or questions. We will ask the committee to confirm this at the next meeting.
Now, this is important--and it relates to the cryptic warning I gave at the last meeting about some last minute revisions to the space allocation from last semester.
    We have indeed been awarded a very generous grant to create and furnish a first-rate Veterans Resource Center. While this is fantastic news, and is a great honor for Chabot, as well as an opportunity to serve this portion of the student body with a world class space, it does come with some conditions and challenges.
    First is that we have to move FAST. To meet the conditions and needs of the donor, we will need to the great majority of the work and furnishing completed before the end of January. Second, it must include ALL of the space formerly used by PATH for tutoring. So, what does that mean for the Committee? 
1. To be able to award contracts for demo, construction, data, furniture and other time-critical tasks, it was suggested that we create a budget for immediate use from Measure B funds. This will allow us to get started without waiting for the District to finalize the donation. On Friday the President had a meeting with me, and in the interest of time I spoke on behalf of the Committee and recommended that she proceed with making a budget of $100,000 from Measure B funds to be used to enable construction and purchases to begin. This should also take the form of a "loan", and will be revisited when the donated funds become available for the project.
2. This will also mean that some of the arrangements we made for space will need to be looked at again, as this leaves the Health Center without a new home. Obviously we will need to discuss this and perhaps reshape some space allocation.
Those are the hot topics. I wanted to give everyone a heads up, and time to think about, respond, or speak with me about these issues. I will be sending more specifics as I get them.
