New training center coming to west Fresno

Congressman Jim Costa was joined by Chancellor of State Center Community College District Dr. Carole Goldsmith, EDC president and CEO Lee Ann Eager, Fresno City Councilmember Miguel Arias and Chuck Riojas of the State Building and Construction Trades Council to announce $1.9 million in funding was secured for a new training center at Fresno City College’s west Fresno campus, which continues to progress toward completion on Monday.

This means new training, assistance and better jobs ahead for the local community of southwest Fresno that has been underserved for so many years. A ground-breaking ceremony followed by construction for the facility is expected soon.

Construction progresses on the West Fresno Campus of Fresno City College on the southeast corner of Church and Walnut avenues in south west Fresno on Monday, April 18, 2022. The Fresno Economic Development Corporation is receiving $1.9 million to construct a 60,00-square-foot training center on the campus to assist women, minorities, veterans, ex-offenders, at-risk and disconnected young adults and other underrepresented individuals as part of $11 million for local projects secured by Congressman Jim Costa through the Fiscal Year 2022 government funding package.
