Future Projects

Multimedia and Arts Center

MULTIMEDIA AND ARTS CENTER

Norco College is prepared to submit a Final Project Proposal to the state for a new 43,000 square foot Multimedia and Arts Center. This building would house all of the arts in one facility as well as provide a 400-seat auditorium.  The state has currently placed a hold on all FPP submittals.

 CENTER FOR HUMAN PERFORMANCE AND KINESIOLOGY

The Center for Human Performance and Kinesiology is a proposed facility to house a regulation-size gymnasium, wellness center, weight room and a kinesiology laboratory.  In addition, the center would house several classrooms and offices.  The building would be located at the northwest end of the pedestrian axis, just beyond the CACT building.  The 39,000 square-foot facility was to be built using a combination of state funds and local bond funds.  The project is currently on hold at the state level until state funds are available. A second phase is also on hold waiting for the state to resume accepting applications for state funding. The second phase would add outdoor athletic fields to complement the building.
