OCC approves $3.4M in campus upgrades

Improvements and upgrades are coming to Oakland Community College now that its Board of Trustees has approved $3.42 million in projects.

The renovations will take place at the Highland Lakes and Orchard Ridge campuses. The electronic signage at all five campuses will also be upgraded.

Work on the Highland Lakes Campus includes the replacement of ventilation equipment in High Oaks Hall at a cost of $2.9 million. The workers will also install an interior, sound-proof wall in Building J on the Orchard Ridge Campus for $55,300.

Oakland County voters in 2001 approved a 0.8-mill property tax to pay for these projects.
