This event is open to the public and the community is encouraged to come ask questions and provide input concerning CFCCâ€™s newest campus. Â The building design will be on display, and members of CFCCâ€™s facultyÂ and staff will be on hand to answer questions and hear input from the community.
Dr. Ted D. Spring said he is excited about the event.
â€œCape Fear Community College is growing rapidly and itâ€™s exciting to take this new step. Â We look forward to hearing directly from the residents about their hopes for the Alston W. Burke Campus and the programs to be offered there. Â Weâ€™re here for the community, and want to make sure weâ€™re responsive to the needs of the Surf City area,â€ said Spring.
Architects are currently designing the first building on CFCCâ€™s campus, which will be located on a 24-acre site off on N.C. Hwy 10. Â The entire budget for construction of the project is set at $2.3 million with funding coming from the Town of Surf City, Pender County and CFCC funds. The property was donated to the college by the late Alston W. Burke in 2008.
Light refreshments and coffee will be served. Â Please callÂ (910) 362-7207Â for more information.
