This community college-based case study describes and analyzes how a new mission and vision adopted by the college trustees was translated into a facility master plan. The vision is designed to serve the needs of the community and facilitate economic development, especially in the areas of health occupations, biotechnology and information/engineering technology. The facility master plan reflects the physical manifestation of the vision with flexibility to meet future changes. Finally, the unsuccessful efforts of the college to fund the facility plan via a local bond measure are described. An earlier version of this paper was presented at “The Road to Comprehensive Planning,” a SCUP workshop held at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, from February 20–22, 2002.
