Here's the deal with the $47 million bond GTCC
hopes the Guilford County Commissioners will place on the November ballot. This hasn't been reported on in a while, and my memory was a bit fuzzy.
GTCC is identifying five major needs for bond money: New classrooms to accommodate increasing student enrollment; new equipment for new buildings coming on line from the 2000 bond referendum; support for a biotech initiative in a partnership with local economic developers; land acquisition to expand all three campuses plus the PTIA Aviation Center; and heating and air conditioning upgrades at the Jamestown campus.
Bond money is a controversial topic, and it will be interesting to see commissioners' reactions as GTCC officials plead their case.
