SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 6, for the four Central Carolina Community College bond projects that were approved by Lee County voters in November 2014.

The ceremony will take place at 4 p.m. at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center, with a reception to follow.

"We are excited to be conducting the upcoming joint groundbreaking for our new facilities for CCCC. The overwhelming approval of the CCCC bonds referendum by Lee County voters authorized the funding mechanism for the College to move forward with the improvements to the Civic Center, the Emergency Services Training Center, the Veterinary Medicine Building, and several renovation projects on CCCC's Kelly Drive campus," said CCCC Board of Trustees Chairman Julian Philpott.

"In addition, the College will open its new Health Sciences Center in early 2018 on the Kelly Drive campus, which will provide much needed space for CCCC's Dental program and other allied health programs," said Philpott. "These upgraded facilities will continue to assist the College in providing its students with a quality educational experience as they pursue certificates and degrees at CCCC. We appreciate the continued support of the Lee County citizens as the College embarks on this period of construction in Lee County."

The four projects include:

  • Construction of the Lee Health Sciences Center. Construction is scheduled to begin in January/February 2017 with completion in March/April 2018.
  • Expansion and renovation of the Veterinary Medical Technology facility. Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2016 with completion in November 2017.
  • Renovation and expansion of the Emergency Services Training Center and the Lee Main Campus. ESTC construction is scheduled to begin in September 2016 with completion in May 2017. Renovations on the Lee Main Campus are to be determined on the priority established by the college and the scheduling of other construction work occurring on campus.
  • New construction and renovation at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center. Construction is scheduled to begin in January/February 2017 with completion in March/April 2018.
