According to State Representative Jarrod Martin, the state Controlling Board approved $17.4 million for a complete renovation of the existing career center building located in Xenia, Ohio.
“The Greene County Career Center plays a vital role to the education of our community.” Martin said. “These renovations will help to ensure that Greene County citizens continue to have state of the art facilities in which to expand their minds and grow their capabilities.”
The Controlling Board approval means that the Greene County Career Center will be able to move forward with the first phase of the project. The initial phase will include a partial roof replacement, upgrading the heating system, interior and lighting upgrades and is estimated to cost $6.2 million.
The Greene County Career Center serves approximately 603 students from the Beavercreek, Fairborn, and Xenia school districts as well as those of Yellow Springs, Greeneview, Sugarcreek TWP, and Cedar Cliff.
