Emerging Needs



As educational and Workforce training needs of Green River and its community are ever-changing, the college will respond to new and emerging needs. These needs will be integrated into the Master Plan as they arise.


The Green River service district is experiencing rapid population growth - about 11 percent since 2000. That, coupled with significant growth in both the college’s Running Start and International Student Programs, continues to exert pressure on facilities. Many needs do not in and of themselves qualify for the funding through specific capital project requests and will require alternate funding mechanisms or will be incorporated into other larger projects.

Unfunded Projects

Campus Front Entry

The demolition of the old Trades & Industry (TI) complex provides an opportunity to reconfigure the main campus entrance. This new straight-in continuation of SE 124th Ave. will significantly improve traffic flow. It will also allow the restoration of a stream that is currently in a culvert under the old TI complex.
