PCC's Willow Creek project is on schedule

Photos and Story by

Remember the Willow Creek project? That’s the facility to serve unemployed and underemployed Oregonians. It’s being built on the MAX light rail line in Washington County, and the walls are going up, even as we speek.

During the 2008 supplemental session of the Legislature, lawmakers granted PCC $7.5 million in matching funds for Willow Creek. That’s why we were able to jump on this project during this school year.

We’re taking another capital construction funding request to the 2009 Legislature: This one is for a building dedicated to careers in education, to be built on the Cascade Campus.
