Hawaii Community College Manono Campus Long Range Development Plan

University of Hawaii

Hilo, Hawaii
Completed 2010

This Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) updates previous Hawaii Community College LRDP’s, prepared in 1996, 1998, and 2003. Changing circumstances and expanded educational requirements necessitated a revision and update to these documents.

Over the years, a number of important instruction and academic support activities have relocated from the Manono Campus to the UH Hilo site. Today more than half of all the instructional activity takes place on the Hilo or upper campus. The split campus is inefficient and marginal in meeting the needs of students, faculty, and staff.

The objectives of the update include: revisiting of the facilities development ultimate plans, recommendation of new capital improvement projects and renovations to best accommodate the educational program needs of the Hilo Manono campus; revising of the civil, landscape, electrical/communication ultimate plans; developing the facilities implementation plan that will satisfy both short and long-range requirements; updating architectural design and landscaping guideline to ensure cohesive and aesthetic campus development; developing and incorporating a barrier free and site accessibility program; and developing sustainable and ecological design strategies. The LRDP includes the Educational Specifications, Long Range Development Plan and the University’s participation.
