Glen Oaks continues renovation project plans

Glen Oaks Community College is moving forward with a renovation project at a cost of nearly $7 million.

Its board of trustees last week voted to approve planning for the project and follows a recent announcement that the college has received nearly $3.5 million in capital outlay funding from the state. The funding requires a 50/50 institution match and since the college received $1.5 million earlier, according to president David Devier, its match is actually $2 million.

Initial plans include finding an architect and construction manager.

Goals of the project include: improving campus safety, security and energy efficiency; modernizing ADA accessibility and compliance; renovating technology laboratories; creating an ag equipment technology lab; upgrading deteriorated interiors as well as the Nora Hagen Theatre; renovating the library into a Student Learning Commons; and extending the useful life of existing facilities.
