CVC to construct new shop building
17,000 sq. ft. facility will include metal shop, wood shop, and art classes at Central Valley Christian
VISALIA – A Visalia school is planning to build a gigantic multi-purpose room for shop classes and not one cent will be built with bond money from Measure A.
On Nov. 13, the Visalia Planning Commission unanimously approved an amendment to its conditional use permit allowing Central Valley Christian (CVC) to construct a new 17,500 square foot building west of its gymnasium on its 7-acre campus on Tulare Avenue east of Akers Street.
The private, K-12 school, said its multipurpose building will house metal, shop, ag, and art classes. A third of the facility will be dedicated to metal shop, 3,500 square feet to wood shop and 2,600 square feet to art classes. The rest of the facility will be split between agriculture sciences, general shop and kiln classes. The average class size is about 22 students. These classes are currently housed in an older building on campus.
No new parking spaces will be required.
