Capital Development Request – Facility Master Planning

Chad Campbell, President

The Utah State Legislature, in conjunction with the Utah Board of Higher Education and the BTECH Board of Trustees, have been very good to Bridgerland Technical College regarding capital development and land bank funding over the last several years. As the new Health Sciences building construction progresses and the addition of almost 28.5 acres of new property, the college has been engaged in a significant facility master planning project this spring. This master planning process has been designed to consider long-range changes to the existing facilities and ideas for implementing the changes over a series of phases. Administration will be present to discuss the progress in the master planning process and the current vision for a capital development request to be presented in more detail during the August 2022 Board of Trustees meeting.

Administration is committed to ensuring existing facilities are used productively as quickly as resources to renovate them become available. Some of the implementation ideas will be funded by internal efficiencies, some by capital improvement, and a substantial part of the update will require capital development funding. The phases and estimated (preferred) timelines will be discussed during the meeting.

ACTION:  Recommend approval of the Facility Master Planning process.
