Originally established as the York Center in 2005, HACC York has experienced substantial growth, expanded academic offerings, increased enrollment, and enlarged the campus. Following the purchase of four properties along Pennsylvania Avenue, the College gained the ability to expand again and required a master plan aimed at guiding administrators, legislators, faculty, staff, and architects through the next ten years and providing a blueprint for the development of the HACC York campus.
As part of the master plan process, the planning team visited the campus to assess the condition of each building, the site, and the existing infrastructure. Interviews were conducted to determine the current and future needs of the College.
The planning team also conducted an environmental scan to identify political, economic, societal, and technological issues and how these issues may influence academic programs offered at HACC York.
In addition to providing a blueprint for the development of the campus, one of the primary goals of this master plan was to create a coherent college community with a distinct identity. With these goals in mind, the planning team developed four options for the growth of the campus over the next ten years. The options were reviewed with the College and two options were selected for development.
