PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

CASCADIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE


[ Filed July 19, 2005, 3:48 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 132Z-141-010 - 132Z-141-060, use of joint Cascadia Community College and University of Washington Bothell facilities.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.50.90 [28B.50.090].

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Cascadia Community College (CCC) and the University of Washington, Bothell (UWB) share Washington state's only co-located higher education campus. The co-location agreement provides that the institutions have dedicated and joint building spaces. There is currently no rule to govern the use of spaces shared with UWB. 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: None. Cascadia Community College will coordinate with the University of Washington to promulgate rules jointly, under separate agency authorization.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study, change in current WACs.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Dede Gonzales, Executive Assistant to the President, Cascadia Community College, 18345 Campus Way N.E., Bothell, WA 98011, (425) 352-8252, fax (425) 352-8313.
