Facilities Master Plan (FMP) Overview & WLC Architects
WLC Architects has been contracted to develop a Facilities Master Plan (FMP) projecting the future facility needs of AUSD. The Facilities Master Plan will consist of a set of guiding principles and facility projects that align AUSD’s built environment with its strategic vision. The FMP plan will provide a framework for continual improvement over the next generation for Albany students and families.
A series of meetings have been scheduled to gather input from stakeholders to assist WLC Architects is developing a Facilities Master Plan (FMP). Meeting dates, times, and locations with staff, parents, and the community are posted on this website.
Facilities Master Planning - "Steering Committee"
Meeting(s) 5/1/2013 & 6/19/2013 at 7:00 p.m. at AUSD
A steering committee has been established with members representing each AUSD school site, and is meeting on a regular basis.
As a member of the Steering Committee, President Black provided the following report at a recent Board meeting: "We were reminded that the Facilities Master Plan is a list of desires in priority order. There is no promise that anything on the list will actually get done. That depends entirely on financing. In fact, it's almost certain that many things on the list will never be done. Life and safety issues clearly have to be taken care of first. After that, it's up to the steering committee to decide what the priorities are so we can know what to do in which order as money becomes available.
The committee decided that if, as expected, the second opinion on the safety of the schools matches the first study in that there is no mortal danger to occupants of the buildings, it is not necessary to get a bond measure on the ballot this year. The committee would rather have a slower, more deliberate process that gives all stake holders the chance to express an opinion. It's anticipated that the FMP will be completed before the end of the year, in time for a bond measure on next year's ballot."
Facilities Master Plan - “Configuration Committee"
Meeting(s) 5/8/2013, 5/22/2013, & 6/5/2013 at 6:30 p.m. at AMS Library
In addition to the Facilities Master Planning Steering Committee, a Configuration Committee has also been established with members representing each AUSD school site and will meet on a regular basis.
As a member of the Steering Committee, President Black provided the following report at a recent Board meeting: "The configuration committee will meet first to decide whether (money permitting) we should keep the current configuration of schools or change it. Any reconfiguration will affect what kind of facilities we need, so their work has to be done before the visioning committees start. Once the reconfiguration committee is done, a visioning committee for each site will meet to determine what facilities will be needed at that site to support future needs. The steering committee will be meeting once a month for the next several months."
Reports from both the steering and configuration committees will be provided to the Board periodically.
Meeting materials will be attached below.
