Tonight, the Board of Trustees had its first opportunity to discuss the letter received during our September 12, 2017 Board meeting. The Trustees heard a presentation on potential community benefits and engagement process. They requested an engagement plan including goals, structure and timeline for the process be presented at their December meeting.

The mission of the Peralta Colleges is to provide educational leadership and to sustainably enhance the human, educational, environmental and social development of the region – and we will adhere to that mission by considering the community impacts and working to shape any potential proposal by the baseball team so that it addresses community concerns and expectations.

 

Based on community input, the engagement process will include:

  • Educational Services and Opportunity
  • Health
  • Housing
  • Job Training, Quality & Accessibility
  • Asset Development
  • Transit, Traffic & Transportation
  • Sustainability and Environment
  • Community Resilience and Cohesion

In addition, we intend to work closely with our students, staff, faculty, neighbors and stakeholders within our shared governance framework to ensure that any proposal strengthens the community. The issue here is not simply mitigating the impact of the potential development but reparations and reinvestment in communities.

The most valuable asset of the Peralta Colleges is the trust and confidence of the community we have served for more than 50 years.
