The drawings are only conceptual and the reality may be "dramatically different," school officials said, but the plan for a proposed Huntsville campus overhaul of Calhoun Community College is dramatic.
The school -- the largest community college in the state with an enrollment of more than 12,000 -- has released drawings it unveiled to the state board of education at last week's work session. The state board is expected to vote on the project at its August 23 meeting in Montgomery.
The proposed $34 million expansion of the Huntsville campus on Wynn Drive includes a significantly new look to the front of the current structure -- a former manufacturing building that has a warehouse look to it. It would also raise student capacity to about 7,500. The facility is currently maxed out with about 4,800 students.
