Background Narrative:

In 2015, MVC completed its first comprehensive master plan. Since that time, there have been several significant external and internal changes and circumstances creating a strong impetus for updating the 2015 MVC Comprehensive Master Plan. These include but are not limited to the following:

• Currently the College is in the process of developing a new Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP 2023).

• RCCD is also developing a new strategic plan, which is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2018

• Further, the California Community College’s Board of Governors established six goals for the system to achieve by 2022 as part of its Vision for Success: Strengthening the California Community Colleges to Meet California’s Needs Plan

• In 2017, MVC appointed a new President and in 2018, RCCD appointed a new Chancellor

• New projects are being implemented that were not envisioned/included in the 2015 master plan such as: Student Services Welcome Center project, BCTC Correction Platform, iMake Innovation Center

• The 2010 infrastructure and utilities plan is outdated and needs to be revised to reflect the campus development envisioned by the new Comprehensive Master Plan

• New state funding programs and priorities: Guided Pathways, College Promise Initiatives, Strong Workforce, Student Centered Funding Formula, Student Success, Equity and Achievement Programs Integration, and an On-line College

• Opportunity for expansion of the campus with the possible land parcel acquisition from the City of Moreno Valley

The 2018-19 MVC Comprehensive Master Plan Update (CMP) project will entail the development of a 10-year plan that consists of both an educational master plan and facilities master plan. The CMP should result in evidence-based recommendations regarding academic program mix, student enrollment growth targets, type and nature of needed student support and administrative services, as well as the amount and type of space/facilities, grounds, parking and utilities. The CMP will also result in a proposed implementation plan that will guide capital invest in the College that support alignment with MVC’s mission and strategic plan; ultimately creating an aesthetically pleasing, highly functional, and comprehensive community college campus that serves well our diverse local community.

The selection of the DLR Group was based on a competitive Request for Proposal and Interview process. Key selection criteria included:

1. Firm experience, Profile, and References

2. Community College/Education and Facilities Master Planning Experience

3. Competitiveness of Fee Proposal

4. Project Approach, Philosophy, and Work Plan

Attached is the service agreement between Riverside Community College District and DLR Group for the Moreno Valley College Comprehensive Master Plan Update.
