Rep. Mike Sparks announced Friday that the State Building Commission has officially approved funding for additions at Motlow State Community College's Smyrna Campus. The monies will be used to create a third building at this location. They will also cover the cost of increasing access to parking for students and additional renovations to existing facilities.
The $27.2 million project was officially approved by the State Building Commission which oversees construction of all public state buildings and structures. In recent years, the Commission's responsibility has been expanded to include authority over most improvement and demolition projects of property owned by the state.
"I have always been a strong supporter of initiatives and investments that enhance education opportunities for residents in our community and state," said Sparks. "I am pleased that the State Building Commission has made this important investment in Rutherford County, and I am thankful for the Commission's support."
Sparks serves as a member of the House Insurance & Banking Committee and the House Business & Utilities Committee, as well as the House Business & Utilities Subcommittee. Sparks lives in Smyrna and represents House District 49, which includes part of Rutherford County.
