Possible Location Change for Ivy Tech in Anderson

Officials with the city of Anderson are proposing a new Ivy Tech Community College campus be located downtown, instead of the spot previously announced by the college. Anderson is offering two alternatives. One is in a former shopping center and the other is a location Mayor Kevin Smith says would save Ivy Tech on development costs, compared to the present plan. The city estimates it would cost more than $8 million for the location close to the interstate, while the paper reports Ivy Tech East Central Region Chancellor Andy Bowne believes infrastructure costs would total about $1 million. He adds that final state approval is slated for the end of next month if the school is to be open by its 2015 target.
