Trustees approve capital improvement priorities
Sept. 30, 2004
KALAMAZOO--At their Sept. 17 meeting, Western Michigan University trustees approved submitting to the state of Michigan an annual listing of building projects the university would like to complete over the next five years. The state requires all public universities to submit such a list, regardless of funding availability.
The prioritized list, called a Capital Outlay Budget Request, goes to the governor and Legislature for their consideration. The top three items on the list approved by the board, by ranked order of priority, are: renovation of Sangren Hall and renovation of South Kohrman Hall for art facilities, estimated to cost $52 million; an addition to Haenicke Hall for science research and mathematics, estimated to cost $25 million; and upgrades to Brown, Dunbar, Knauss, North Kohrman and Rood halls, estimated at $70 million.
