Action Item 1 Revision of the Capital Improvement Plan

At the Board’s June meeting you approved the Capital Improvement Plan which we submit to the Board of Governors in making our request for PECO funding. The second item on the Plan was a request for the remaining funds needed to construct the new Science and Humanities (biology) Building.  We have already received 2 allocations toward this building.
 
The request for the third installment which you approved at the June 25 meeting was for $5,414,565.  In completing the building program we discovered that we needed an additional 20,000 square feet of space beyond our original estimate (90,000 square feet). This means that we must increase our funding request to $10,914,565.
 
Because this Plan has to be submitted by July 31, we are asking that you vote yes or no via email.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
