Uken Report 10/19 – PUBLIC ENCOURAGED TO SIGN BUILDING BEAM AT INDIO CAMPUS EXPANSION SITE
PALM DESERT – Community members and students are encouraged to add their signatures to one of the beams which will be displayed on the Indio Campus in the new expansion as part of College of the Desert’s Indio campus. A unique and personal touch commemorating the project and ways for the community to leave a mark on such an important project.
The COD Indio Campus expansion is a three-story building and will accommodate an additional 5,000 students. The existing instructional facility on campus is also slated for a remodel and infrastructure upgrades and will be joined to the new building via a pavilion. The new building is expected to be operational in the Spring of 2024.
The project budget is $73.8 million for the campus expansion and upgrades and will be partly covered by funding from Measure CC (2016).
