College to unveil $2.4 million capital budget Proposal mainly involves projects already approved


Howard Community College will unveil a proposed $2.4 million capital budget at its board of trustees meeting tonight, a budget consisting primarily of projects that already have been approved.

The projects include:

* Renovation and expansion of the college's physical education facilities, which will cost $2.5 million and be completed by 2000.

* A $1.9 million renovation of the college's theater facilities by 2002.

* Construction of an $8 million building by 1998 that will include 85,000 square feet of classrooms, faculty offices, laboratory space and child care facilities.

* The $2.1 million addition of several parking lots by 2002 to add 1,030 parking spaces to the college's 1,449 existing spaces.

* Construction of a $10.5 million cultural arts center by 2006.

The only significant differences from the capital budget approved last year are minor changes to renovations proposed for campus buildings over the next decade.

Tonight's public hearing on the proposed capital budget will begin at 7 p.m. in Room A-225, the trustees' conference room. The board's regular meeting will follow the hearing.
