855.000 - Facilities Planning and Space Allocation Committee

The purpose of the Facilities Planning and Space Allocation Committee is to provide leadership in the development, ongoing evaluation, and periodic update of the college’s comprehensive Facilities Master Plan. In addition, the committee will review proposals for facilities space allocation consistent with the Plan and in a manner that promotes the effective and efficient use of facilities space – both in the short term and long term. The committee will forward space allocation recommendations to the Executive Cabinet for approval. Space allocation proposals will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  1. Alignment with the Strategic Plan, Facilities Master Plan, and other planning documents.

  2. Established unit priorities for instructional, programming, office, and meeting space.

  3. Proximity to existing programs and operations.

  4. Permanence (avoiding short-term moves where possible).

  5. Additional costs (remodels, infrastructure, furniture, etc…).

  6. Impact on other programs (e.g., will another program be displaced or lose space under the proposal, etc…).

  7. Access requirements under Americans with Disabilities Act.

All requests for space allocation must be submitted using the Facilities Change Request and Space Allocation Form, found under “Forms” on ClarkNet.
