What the Univ. of minnesota wants to build

University of Minnesota regents are looking at this list of priority construction projects as part of its 6-year “capital improvement plan” and request to the 2012 legislature for $409 million, about $269 million of which would come from the state, and $140 million of the U itself:

  • Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement (HEAPR) — $90,000
  • Ambulatory Care Clinic — $200,000,000
  • Old Main Utility Building renovation — $81,000,000
  • Itasca Biological Station and Labs — $6,090,000
  • Eddy Hall & Space Optimization — $21,000,000
  • American Indian Learning Resource Center — $11,025,000

They’ve discussed maintenance-cost savings of the renovations as well the need for expansions and new buildingsl, but appear to agree with the list above.

They’ll review it again next month.
