Glen Oaks Community College President David Devier said it’s imperative that the school continues to focus on planned renovations to its technology lab, library and art studio.
The work collectively totals about $2.1 million.
During last week’s board of trustees meeting, Devier said the college will continue to work with Kalamazoo-based architect firm TowerPinkster in order to keep renovation plans at the forefront.
Also, the board was informed that Plainwell-based Wyoming Asphalt submitted the lowest of three bids for parking lot improvements. The cost will be just under $300,000, though Michigan State Police is chipping in $50,000 with the agreement that the southeast corner of the parking lot will be augmented to include a motorcycle-safety-training course. The balance will come from a state grant previously issued to the college, Devier said.
The design of the lot will result in angled parking rather than straight-in parking.
