Rose State College is announcing that it is about to begin construction on the first of many campus improvement projects. As part of its ongoing outreach to the communities it serves, the college will hold three town hall meetings to discuss the coming renovation work to its Aquatic Center.
"I would like to personally thank all the voters who made the much-needed campus investments possible," said Dr. Jeanie Webb, President of Rose State College. "Children and adults from the community, along with our students, take advantage of our Aquatic Center every day, and we are excited to be starting our renovations on something that so many people value as part of their wellness routine."
Officials with the Aquatic Center said the town hall meetings will last about an hour, and will cover the changes planned by the architect for the work, ADG, and the construction manager, CMSWillowbrook. The location of the town hall meeting will be at the campus Professional Training Center, 1720 Hudiburg Drive, Midwest City, OK 73110.
The dates and times for the town hall meetings are:
Monday April 14, 10 a.m.
Tuesday April 15, 6 p.m.
Friday April 18, 1 p.m.
Among items to be discussed: projected dates of closure, reopening, and other items pertinent to the renovation.
“This is an exciting time. We are really looking forward to the new, improved Aquatics Center that we will have after these renovations are finished. We can’t wait to share the information with our community,” said Rose State Aquatics Coordinator Kim Queri.
The work is part of a bond issue to renovate facilities at Rose State College, passed March 5, 2013 by voters in the Rose State College Technical Area Education District.
