CHICO, Calif. - You may have noticed, Pleasant Valley High School in Chico looks like a construction zone. Several projects are underway and the front parking lot is all dirt.
The Valhalla building, the old multi-purpose room, is being remodeled into the new Administration space. The old Administration space will become the new medical pathway classrooms.
A new Multi-Purpose Room and dining and kitchen building are also being built. The campus is also getting a new Culinary Arts classroom and lab.
The school's front parking lot will lose a little parking, but Principal Damon Whittaker says there will still be plenty of parking.
Improvements are also slated in the quad areas between the new buildings and safety upgrades to the school will be made, such as creating one main point of access for guests during school hours.
Facilities Planner & Construction Supervisor, Maria Campos says visitors will also see a new parking lot configuration.
The total construction cost, according to Campos, is $16.6 million dollars.
The project should be complete by August of 2021.
