Building a Better Learning Environment – Folsom Lake College Finalizing Updated Facilities Master Plan
September 19, 2019
We are pleased to share that the Folsom Lake College (FLC) Facilities Draft Master Plan (PDF) and the Facilities Master Plans for the other Los Rios Community College District colleges are now complete.
The new Facilities Master Plans provide a solid foundation for addressing the long-term facility needs of Folsom Lake College, which includes the main campus, the El Dorado Center in Placerville, and the Rancho Cordova Center, as well as districtwide. These plans represent our priority list with regard to all things facilities – upgrades, improvements, modernizations, and new construction – for the next decade. By guiding and shaping where our students learn, it will have a meaningful impact on how and what they learn and provide for an enhanced learning experience by creating usable, flexible spaces.
Highlights from the Facilities Master Plan at FLC include a significant expansion of our college, as well as a number of other upgrades to better prepare students for technical and other high-demand fields, improve resources for our neediest students, and build modern learning environments to align with a changing educational and career needs.
Some noteworthy future projects:
- Main Folsom campus – Additional instructional space, including the new science building ("Phase 2.1") pictured here; expansion and centralization of Student Services; as well as other transportation, access, and parking improvements.

- El Dorado Center – HVAC system upgrades and renovation of science labs
- Rancho Cordova Center – New Phase 2 instructional building
The FLC Facilities Master Plan is a direct reflection of the input received from faculty, staff, and administrative leaders at the college and throughout the district as part of the formal facilities planning process. Their invaluable feedback, coupled with a continuous assessment of student needs, resulted in a plan that will provide real value and tangible results as we strive to prepare our students for what’s next and give our faculty the tools to create high quality learning environments.
We look forward to seeing the innovative projects in this plan come to fruition, and to working with our students, faculty, and staff to continue to assess changing conditions, monitor results, and adjust the plans accordingly.
