PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON


[ Filed May 6, 2005, 11:32 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: Use of University of Washington, Bothell and Cascadia Community College joint facilities, new chapter 478-137 WAC.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.20.130.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The University of Washington, Bothell (UWB) and Cascadia Community College (CCC) share Washington state's only colocated higher education campus. The colocation agreement provides that the institutions have dedicated joint building spaces. UWB has been able to govern operations of its dedicated campus facility use under chapter 478-136 WAC, Use of University of Washington facilities, but there is currently no rule to govern the use of spaces shared with CCC. These new rules would allow the institutions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of shared campus space.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The University of Washington will coordinate with the Cascadia Community College to promulgate rules jointly, under separate agency authorization.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication. Written comments or inquiries may be directed to Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination, by one of the following routes: US Mail University of Washington, 4014 University Way N.E., Seattle, WA 98105-6203; campus mail Box 355509; e-mail rules@u.washington.edu; or fax (206) 616-6294.
