MPCC holding meetings for input, ideas for long-range facilities plan

Imperial will host meeting on April 25
    Mid-Plains Community College (MPCC) is in the process of developing its next facilities master plan and is looking for community input at upcoming meetings.
    “We have a great opportunity to shape the next decade of what this campus looks like,” said Andy Long, McCook Community College Vice President.
    “We’ve already spent a lot of time with the college architects and talking to faculty to get their input to develop some initial ideas,” he said.
    A large part of the next chapter of the college is what we do with the Elks building and land, he said.
    “Our facilities master plan will be a tool that will guide our overall physical development concept and reflect our strategy to provide facilities that support the college mission,” said Michael D. Steele, Vice President of Administrative Services for MPCC.
    In conjunction with the facilities master plan, MPCC is working on its academic master plan, intended to facilitate growth within each department.   
    “We believe that completing the facilities and academic master plans together we will create a plan that supports the needs of our employees, students and communities within our 18 county service area,” Steele said.
    Other community input meetings are set for:
    April 18, 6:30 p.m. MT in Ogallala.
    April 24, 5:30 p.m. CT in North Platte at WW Wood Student Lounge.
    April 25 6:30 p.m. MT in Imperial.
