LANCASTER — Antelope Valley College’s governing Board agreed to grant and dedicate an easement for 30th Street West and Avenue J-8 to the City of Lancaster at Monday’s meeting.

“That’s going to be part of the new entrance to the college,” Board President Lew Stults said Tuesday.

The college’s main entrance will  change from the current location on Avenue K north to Avenue J-12 and 30th Street West as part of the college’s facilities master plan approved by trustees in September 2016.

The main Lancaster campus will be transformed over the next 10 years with new buildings.

AV College trustees, administrators and guests celebrated the groundbreaking of the future Sage Hall on June 4.

The 34,295-square-foot Sage Hall will house the Learning Center, tutoring facilities, office space and classrooms. With a budget of $23 million, construction of Sage Hall will take approximately two years to complete.

The project is funded with proceeds from Measure AV, the $350 million bond measure passed by local voters in November 2016.

Sage Hall will be the first major building constructed utilizing Measure AV bond funds.
