In September 2009, the RCC Board of Education adopted a resolution approving a contract with Opsis Architecture and Abell Architectural Group for completion of a master plan document. The process included college beneficiaries and constituents in a collaborative planning process. Significant background development was completed on the campus facilities, including the creation of a digital database of all campus buildings and program areas, which allows for a better understanding of current facility capacities. References and resources for monitoring internal and external environments are also provided in the Master Plan appendices 1-3. The project was completed, within budget, in March 2011 and accepted by the Board in April 2011.
The College Master Plan represents the first comprehensive review of facilities since completion of plans associated with the Table Rock Campus in 2003 and Riverside Campus in 2006.
