Voters approved the establishment of an independent district for the college in 1968. Amo DeBernardis (ca 1914-2010), former assistant superintendent of <a href="/pages/w/112630092083463">Portland Public Schools</a>, was the founding president of the school, serving from 1961 to 1979.</p><p>In 1971 the Cascade Campus opened in Northeast Portland, and the Rock Creek Campus in Washington County opened in 1976. The district passed a $374 million bond measure in 2008. PCC's $25 million Willow Creek Center opened in 2009 and earned a platinum <a href="/pages/w/138940829459071">LEED</a> certification the next year. A new campus in <a href="/pages/w/109279752432354">Newberg</a>, named Newberg Center, opened in October 2011, replacing a temporary arrangement in use for the 2010–11 school year, in which PCC courses were offered at the Chehalem Cultural Center. The new center's 13,000-square-foot (1,200 m2) building was reported as being predicted to earn platinum LEED certification.</p>
