Laramie County Community College will receive funding from the mill that recently passed for the building of an auditorium.
With the passing of this mill, LCCC will no longer be the only Community College in the state without an auditorium space. Additionally the improvements in the Fine Arts Building will provide LCCC instructors with facilities that allow for increased educational opportunities due to the improvements to the electrical and ventilation systems. LCCC is looking to begin the renovations in late May and construction of the new auditorium is likely be begin in July of 2019.
“Laramie County Community College would like to thank the voters of Laramie County for supporting the renovation and expansion of the educational space at LCCC. We are so pleased to see this project move forward and provide a positive impact on the educational experiences of our students. This is an exciting day for LCCC, these improvements for our campus will allow us to update and improve our educational space and create opportunities for our students and our community members to showcase their talents in our new auditorium,” said LCCC President, Joe Schaffer.
The auditorium will be funded by the mill and also by funding which was appropriated by the Wyoming State Legislature. It will be able to serve community artist organizations in addition to the community college with the following features once constructed:
- A modern, 400-seat auditorium
- Support spaces for the auditorium
- Lobby and restroom space outside of the auditorium
- The Esther and John Clay Fine Arts Gallery, relocated from its current location
