Bookmark and Share
 
Fox Valley Technical College announces an update on its facility expansion plans as a result of passing a $66.5 million public referendum on April 3.

The passage of the referendum, which yielded a 65.3% favorable vote, enabled the college to move forward on several projects designed to meet the increased needs of regional employers and specialized training initiatives.

FVTC’s facility plans as part of the referendum include the construction of a Public Safety Training Center in collaboration with the Outagamie County Regional Airport (ATW), and a Health Simulation Technology Center and Student Success Center on the Appleton campus. Expansion efforts include the J. J. Keller Transportation Center and Agriculture Center, also both located on the Appleton campus.

Two other aspects of the referendum include meeting regional growth needs in both Chilton and Oshkosh. FVTC purchased its Chilton Regional Center as part of passing the vote, and a land acquisition process is in the works in Oshkosh adjacent to the college’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center.

After several months of going through various regulatory phases related to zoning, planning, and environmental matters, FVTC is announcing the following tentative timeline concerning the anticipated construction and completion of the projects:

Health Simulation & Technology Center: Construction, October of 2012; Completion, Fall of 2013

Public Safety Training Center: Construction, March of 2013; Completion, Spring of 2015

Student Success Center: Construction, March of 2013; Completion, Fall of 2014

Agriculture Center (expansion): Construction, April of 2013; Completion, Fall of 2013

J. J. Keller Transportation Center (expansion): Construction, April of 2013; Completion, Spring of 2014
