PSUSD held a similar conference in the past, but it was a smaller scale and all virtual. This year the conference is a full day, packed with panels led by city officials, local leaders, and national experts.
Eight representatives of COD took turns speaking, including Dr. Martha Garcia, superintendent and president of the college. She used her time to thank the panelists and viewers for attending and encouraged the community to provide input.
While there was discussion of what the college hoped to build on the site, and mention that hundreds of millions of taxpayer-approved bonds would be used to fund the campus, a transfer approved by city leaders had only one formal condition.
