Dale Grant shared information on the Rangeland Center Design Development. Phase 1 will include the arena. There has been $3,000,000.00 raised. Phase 2 will be in the que at the state.
 
He also discussed the Armstrong Pool closing because of the remodeling of Armstrong. Two options are being considered. Option 1 is to add on to the PAC and a smaller pool (4 lanes) would be the result. Option 2 is to work with the city to cover the municipal pool and have a joint agreement. The steps needed for option 2 are:
 
1.      Receive approval from students
2.      Prepare plan for State college system
3.      Get everyone on board (students, President, State     folks, etc.)
4.      College would assist in operating costs and costs of construction and CSC students would get in free.
 
The college really wants to work with the city/community option but needs to get approval/support from the student senate.
