Oakland Community College green lights $2M in campus improvements

Oakland Community College is moving
forward with almost $2 million in improvements, with more possible later
this year.

“I am sure there are some on the books,” says George
Cartsonis, a spokesman for Oakland Community College, adding
that those projects will probably be announced after the fiscal year
ends in July.

For now the college plans to spend $1.87 million on
repairs to facilities at its Highland Lakes and Orchard Ridge campuses
this spring and summer.

Highland Lakes will receive $849,500 to
repave the parking lot next to the Campus Pavilion. Lighting will be
added and the pavilion made accessible to the handicapped.

Orchard
Ridge will get emergency structural investigations and repairs to
Building K ($375,000), replacement of the emergency generator,
distribution panels and lighting in Building J ($199,500), and
replacement of 152 campus doors ($473,800).
