Palomar College officials are scheduled to begin a project Friday to develop a satellite campus in Rancho Bernardo.
The San Marcos-based community college purchased the 27-acre property on Rancho Bernardo Road in 2010. The lot already contained a 110,000-square-foot building and three-story parking structure.
The project will involve improvements like completion of a roadway and installation of walkways, landscaping and lighting. A lobby, lecture and laboratory classrooms, and offices will be built inside the building.
Space also will be made for student support services, a bookstore and food services, information services and a community room.
The site purchase and improvements are being funded with the $694 million Proposition M bond approved by voters in November 2006.
Classes are scheduled to be offered at the site beginning in the summer of 2018.
