November Project Update

As you may have read in our October Update, the contruction bond funding originally earmarked for this project has been moved to other, higher priority projects at the Miramar College Campus.  The decision was made by the College District's Board of Trustees after receiving a recommendation from the Chancellor's Office to reallocate the Prop N construction bond funds.  Unfortunately, this has now stalled our progress to develop the NTC Camp Nimitz site as our new Emergency Vehicle Operations Center.  The big question is: Now what?  We have the property but not the funds to build EVOC...

For the time being, PSTI will continue EVOC training at several sites.  Classroom lecture and driving simulator instruction will remain at the Miramar College campus.  Behind the wheel, SkidCar and track work will be done at Qualcomm Stadium's parking lots, scheduling permitting. 

The PSTI Board of Directors will meet in January to discuss potential solutions.  Additional research and analysis is occurring in the background with City staff.  Until we receive clear direction from the Board of Directors, we will be on hold pending the outcome.   If anyone out there has any ideas on construction funding sources, please feel free to send your ideas my way (  Thank you.
