The community college is looking to build and expand in seven main areas. They are looking to build a Student Success Center, where students could have a one-stop shop for their needs. The project has already received a $3 million donation from the Greehey Family Foundation. Another area is in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medicine (STEMM) facilities. Plans include renovating the current science and technology buildings for improved learning.

ICCC is also looking for funds to improve their Webster City and Storm Lake centers, make general improvements to their 50-year-old buildings on their main campus in Fort Dodge, moving the Ad Industrial Park in Fort Dodge to further expand the fuel testing and research labs and using funds for their high school partnerships and career academies. They would also like to install security cameras, institute a public safety notification system and improve building locks for increase safety and security.

Iowa Central’s bond referendum is a separate election from the possible bond referendum for the Greene County School District in April for a new high school and career academy with the community college.

The special bond vote takes place on February 6th in each of the nine counties that Iowa Central serves, including Greene County. Absentee ballots are available now at the Greene County Auditor’s office. A request for an absentee ballot must be filled out first, before one can be mailed to you.
