Neighborhood Advisory Committee

Centralia College always seeks to grow in ways that are beneficial to not only the college, but our community. To insure that the needs of our neighbors are addressed as we grow, the college has coordinated with residents near the college and the City of Centralia to assemble a Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) that will provide guidance on how our campus and community will evolve.

On December 20, 2010 Centralia College hosted the first meeting of the Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC). At this meeting members discussed the benefits of creating a college district, ways to improve the area identified as the college district, and parking lot alternative sites near the campus.

The college plans to hold NAC meetings 2 to 3 times per year, with the next meeting planned for some time in the late spring/early summer.Minutes and documents from past meetings are posted below.
