From rundown hotel, to college campus: Some changes are coming to a part of Rancho Cordova.
The corner of Paseo Drive and Folsom Boulevard used to house an old building frequented by vagrants and a fast food joint, but now, ground is being broken on an extension site for Folsom Lake College.
"It's been over a decade that this project has been in the works," Folsom Lake College President Rachel Rosenthal said.
Rosenthal says the 26,000-square foot facility will triple the capacity of their current satellite campus, near Mather.
"We're shooting for occupancy in the fall of 2015," said Planning Supervisor Dan Mckechnie.
The building's situated right across from a light rail station. It's being paid for through local bonds.
