Capital Funds From the State of Ohio

I am often asked why are we investing in campus facility renovations during a time when operating budgets are challenged and why don’t we use those facility funds on general operations?  The answer is that the State of Ohio specifically allocates funds for capital projects and those funds cannot be used for any other purpose except for campus construction and renovations. The College was allocated $5,000,000 as our share of  the 2013/2014 Biennium Capital Budget. As most of you may be aware, the Governor has just presented his recommendations for the State of Ohio’s Biennium Operating Budget for 2014/2015. The Biennium Operating Budget and Biennium Capital Budget are two “separate” budgets in which one deals with general operations and the other with capital renovations. The allocated funds of the two budgets are not interchangeable.

With the most recent Capital Allocations from the state we are proceeding with the following projects:

John Deere Lab Expansion:

The former Welding Lab in the Transportation Technology Building is being renovated to house an expansion for the College’s John Deere Program.  The additional space will allow for more John Deere Equipment to be housed inside (a requirement) and thus providing the space to accommodate more students in a growing program.

Math Labs

The success of the new Math Lab located in Transportation Technology has inspired us to create two additional labs on the Toledo and Findlay Campuses.

Heritage Hall II

The Heritage Hall II project is by far the largest project in process for this calendar year which will provide a large, state-of the-art Culinary Center. The new Culinary Center will be the newest and most sophisticated culinary training facility in Northwest Ohio.  As we have had and continue to have a waiting list for this program, we are confident it will allow us to attract and train more students as well as grow to be one of the College’s most successful programs. 

In addition to the Culinary Center, more than twenty classrooms and a new Medical Assistance Program (M.A.P.) Lab will be built in the remaining shelled space of Heritage Hall.  This will be done in two phases with the first phase being the M.A.P. Lab for this Fall semester followed by the additional classrooms which we are planning to complete with funds from a 2015/2016 State Capital Budget.

Basic Renovations

Along with the specific renovation projects, we have identified numerous repair and maintenance projects for both of the College’s Campuses.  Exterior projects such as door and window replacements, tuck-pointing, roofs, along with interior projects, including, mechanical, painting and carpet replacement will be identified, prioritized and addressed.

    Thank you for these exciting details for the future building plans, and the budget clarification.

  2. SF Says:

    I am so glad that there is money allocated for renovations. This will help to maintain our facility and to update the space and equipment.

  3. Lorry Cology Says:

    It’s great to see that there are plans for renovations! The buildings on the Toledo campus (College Hall, Health Tech, Bicen. Hall, etc.) are getting old and starting to show it.

    On my wish list: Better lighting in the area between Founders Hall and Kingsley Hall. It’s really dark there at night!
