Downtown Alexandria chosen for new campus

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Downtown Alexandria has been chosen as the home of Central Louisiana Technical Community College's new main campus.

The $21 million-plus campus will replace the college's current Alexandria campus, located on South MacArthur Drive.

The Louisiana Community and Technical College System Facilities Corporation chose downtown over a proposal by Louisiana State University of Alexandria. A specific site has not been designated.

The city already has nearly $2.3 million earmarked in its capital budget for the local match required for the community college project.
