BHC Updating Facilities Plan

WVIK Staff

Residents of the Black Hawk College District can help plan future improvements for its buildings and other facilities. Thursday and Friday college officials will hold public meetings as they begin the process of updating their facilities master plan.

Steve Frommelt, Vice President of Finance and Administration, says the current plan was approved three years ago, and since then some of its major priorities have been accomplished, including the new health sciences center on the Moline campus, and the welding and skilled trades center on the east campus. A new veterinary technology center is under construction. 
It's also a good time to update the plan because since it was first completed, several new trustees have joined the board, and there's a new president and other top administrators.

Frommelt says one of the next projects will probably be to update space used for student services, such as counseling and advising, the testing center, and the independent learning center.

Thursday's meeting begins at 5:15 pm on the Moline campus, with Friday's public meeting at 5:15 in Kewanee, in the Community Education Center.
