In March of 2004, the Alameda County voters approved Measure B, which authorized the sale of $498 million of capital improvement bonds that were to enable the District to repair, acquire, renovate, construct and equip college buildings, site and infrastructure at both campuses. Projects on the Chabot Campus have included new construction, demolition, full modernization, select remodeling, energy efficiency, accessibility and underground utility upgrades, and photovoltaic panel installation.
The Chabot Community College has provided quality, affordable and accessible higher education for Alameda County residents for more than 50 years. First established in 1961, opening on a temporary site in San Leandro, Chabot moved into its permanent campus with 94 acres on Hesperian Boulevard in Hayward, CA. in 1965. Over the years new buildings were added to support the education mission. The District’s 2005 Education and Facilities Master Plan included three new buildings, the Instructional Office Building, the Community and Student Services Center and the PE Strength and Fitness Center. Fourteen buildings were completely renovated and three others were partially renovated. In addition, a new central plant and distribution system was installed to provide heating and cooling to every building on campus. A one Megawatt Photovoltaic system was installed over parking areas.
