Norwalk Community College slated for state capital funding

NORWALK, Conn. – Improvements at Norwalk Community College would be funded under a proposal from Gov. Dannel Malloy.

The request for more than $37 million in capital improvement projects for the state’s community colleges will be placed on the agenda for an upcoming meeting of the State Bond Commission, a press release from the governor’s office said. The funding will be used for new instruction, research and laboratory equipment; development of IT networks; and other various renovation and construction projects at the colleges.

That includes $3.7 million to finance the design of renovations at Norwalk Community College, including a pedestrian bridge, an addition to house a student center, new classrooms, and exterior and interior renovations.

“Our state’s community and state colleges play in integral role in our effort to train the workforce of tomorrow,” Malloy said in the press release. “The investments we are announcing today will help our state and community colleges update and modernize their facilities so that our students can compete in the global economy.”

Funds for construction of the renovations at NCC have not yet been authorized by the General Assembly, but will be requested in a future capital budget and through the Bond Commission once the design process is sufficiently advanced.

The March 13 special meeting of the State Bond Commission will begin at 10:30 a.m. in Room 1E of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
