A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Wed., June 1, at 2 p.m. for Clark College’s new Boschma Farms campus in Ridgefield. Design is underway with construction scheduled to begin late spring 2023. The facility is expected to be completed late in 2024 with classes beginning late 2024 or early 2025. 

Clark College has entered into a design-build contract with Mortenson and Henneberry Eddy Architects, who will provide flexibility to work through current economic and supply chain construction challenges. Representatives of the company will be at the ceremony. 

The goal is to create 61,000 square feet of space that can be used for advanced manufacturing training, computer labs, five classrooms and faculty and staff offices. The College was awarded $1.5 in federal funding to purchase computer-controlled advanced manufacturing equipment and is seeking additional funding to secure the full complement of advanced equipment. Work has begun on designing a curriculum for a new clean energy degree program. 

The groundbreaking ceremony, which will feature remarks by College President Dr. Karin Edwards, is at 200-204 N 65th Avenue in Ridgefield. Take I-5 northbound to Exit 14. Head east on Pioneer Street to a roundabout, then go north on N 65th Avenue and take the first right onto the new campus grounds. There is space marked for parking.
