A new stage located in the City College Quad in front of the Student Center will host concerts, shows and other campus events and is on track to be completed by the first week of February, according to City College Director of Operations Greg Hayman.

Hayman said the new stage covers an area damaged by students who take the shortest path across the Quad. The stage will also replace old steam vents that are no longer in use and serve as a permanent structure to eliminate the need to set up portable stages.

“Assuming that the rain holds off and the workers can get in there, they should finish pretty soon and then just finish the railing, the last part of it,” Hayman says.

According to Hayman, the project was mostly kept in-house, using carpenters already employed with the Los Rios District. Including state fees and payments to the stage’s architect, the cost of the stage is estimated at $12,700.

“We will shoot two birds with one stone by building [a] permanent stage and saving on the cost of labor [for] rolling up [temporary] stages every time there is an event,” Hayman said.

“It’s nice to see a permanent stage,” said Afable.

According to Hayman there is no inauguration ceremony planned once the stage is completed, but a few clubs are already planning on hosting events that will take advantage of the new stage.

“It will be interesting to see who schedules it first,” Hayman said.

City College student Jessica Nichols also hopes to one day use the stage as a place to showcase her talents.

“It’s amazing to see the size of the stage. It has a lot of room to host activities and I hope to dance on that stage,” Nichols said.
