Rowan-Cabarrus trustees to discuss north campus renovations, strategic plan

Rowan Cabarrus Community College’s Board of Trustees will receive an update on additions and renovations to the college’s north campus on Monday.

The renovations, funded by a $12 million bond referendum passed in 2010, include some upgrades to make sure the campus’ buildings are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Building 600, which houses the college’s health programs, will also receive a wrap around, which will provide additional square footage for additional health programs.

The college’s recently completed fire and emergency services training facility was also included in the bond.

The board will also give its final feedback and possibly adopt the college’s strategic plan that spans 2015 to 2018.

Highlights include several proposed recommendations by the Personnel, Building & Grounds, Finance & Investment and Institutional Advancement & Legislative committees.

The board will discuss its partnership with Alevo, the large technology company that is moving into the old Philip Morris Plant in Concord, bringing hundreds of high tech jobs to the area.

The college has added extra protective measures its information technologies security system, and the board will be briefed on those upgrades.

The Board of Trustees will meet Monday in the Paradowski Boardroom, located at the college’s north campus, 1333 Jake Alexander Blvd. S., in Salisbury. The strategic plan discussion will be at 3 p.m., and the board meeting will take place at 4 p.m.
