WVSU Developmet Plan Calls for Renovations

West Virginia State University

West Virginia State University's development plan is calling for some renovations and upgrades on campus and several modest changes to campus layout.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the university's plan was lays out a need for roofing, heating and air-conditioning repairs on some buildings. It also proposes expanding the university westward and moving some facilities to other buildings.

The plan was prepared by ZMM Architects and Engineers. Board members are expected to approve the plan next month.

While it cites a potential for some new buildings, the school doesn't plan on beginning construction on anything just yet. Officials say it's a plan for the university's future.

University President Brian Hemphill has pledged to further expand the school and wants to enroll another 800 students by 2020.
