Welcome to the North Orange County Community College District's webpages detailing the planning process for the 2021-2030 Comprehensive Educational and Facilities Master Plan. The purpose of the Comprehensive Master Plan is to provide a working vision for the future growth and development of the District and its three campuses through the year 2030.
Purposes of a Comprehensive Master Plan
The NOCCCD Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP) is grounded in an analysis of both internal realities, such as the current systems and programs, and external influences, such as demographic trends and the community's educational interests and workforce needs. The Educational Plan portion of the CMP is the basis for the Facilities Plan portion of the CMP. This CMP will present a ten-year roadmap for NOCCCD (to the year 2030) and, as such, is the foundation for other planning efforts District-wide including strategic plans, program reviews, and allocation of resources.
The Educational Plan portion of the CMP will be developed with collaboration across the District and with community members for the purposes of:
The Facilities Master Plan portion of the CMP will evaluate and determine the overall requirements of all facilities across the District. The objective is to appraise current and future spatial needs, identify building and facility sustainability requirements, establish priorities related to flexible learning spaces, formulate project costs, and recommend a resource allocation plan for each District location.
This CMP is the long-term plan in the District's integrated planning cycle. Each component of the planning model links to one another with data collection and analyses leading to plan development, resource allocation, plan implementation, and assessment of the plan's outcomes that subsequently leads to program improvement and the next cycle of plan development.
Though guided by planners, architects and consulting experts, the Comprehensive Master Plan is, at its core, a District, campus, and community effort. A successful plan is only built with critical input from students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members.
These webpages are being developed as a communication tool and document repository for NOCCCD's 2021-2030 Comprehensive Master Plan project. The website will chart the progress of the planning effort and will provide a platform for information dissemination and input from campus and community members alike. Once the planning process is completed, the site will become a home to planning documents and progress updates.
