Board of Trustees Approves Resolution to Pause Construction Project

Dear Colleague,

At the special meeting of the Board of Trustees on Friday, January 31, the Board approved Resolution 155 to pause construction on the Allied Health, Science & Advanced Manufacturing Classroom Complex (HSAMCC) in order to allow the College to complete additional planning for the programs currently housed in the buildings that would be replaced.

Pausing the construction will also pause the need for the state legislature to approve local financing for a certificate of participation (COP), which the governor did not include in the capital budget.

The College is working proactively with the State Board of Community & Technical Colleges (SBCTC) and legislative leadership to move the resolution forward and coordinate the capital request in the next biennial budget. It is our expectation that once we are ready to proceed with the construction project, the HSAMCC building will be placed at the top of the 2021-23 capital project list.

In the meantime, the College will continue to take necessary steps and actions to continue preparing for the new building (such as building design and raising funds for a capital campaign).

Respectfully,
Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
President
