WOODLAND, Calif. – The community is invited to join the Woodland Community College Performing Arts Project Team for the final forum regarding the new Performing Arts Facility on Friday, Jan. 31.

The forum will take place in Community Room 800 at the Woodland Community College Campus, 2300 East Gibson Road in Woodland from noon to 1 p.m.

The total cost of the building is projected to be $42 million. Funding for the facility comes from the successful approval of the Measure J bond in 2006 and matching state funds from Proposition 51.

The new facility will house several programs including, culinary arts, fine arts, music and a state proscenium performing arts theater.

This project marks an important leap forward in WCC’s growth as a comprehensive community college by expanding opportunities for degrees and certificates.

As a landmark venue for performances and community events, the Performing Arts and Culinary Arts facility will be one of the college’s signature buildings and serve as the heart of the Woodland campus.

This community forum will allow those in attendance to learn about the work already completed and a glimpse into the next phase of the project.

The community is encouraged to ask questions, share comments, suggestions and recommendations. All information gathered at the forum will be considered.

The new building is scheduled to open in June 2023, with a groundbreaking planned for spring 2021.
