College building benefits community

Bainbridge -- A South Georgia college plans to renovate a campus building to benefit the community at-large.

Construction on the Kirbo Regional Center at Bainbridge College was stopped in 2005 because of poor construction and substandard materials. Now, new architects and construction managers have come up with a plan to renovate the building and make it usable.

"It's for the people of southwest Georgia, it will have multiple functions,"
said College President Dr. Tom Wilkerson.  "Some of that is cultural some of that is social, because it will be a five hundred seat theater in it there will be a three hundred seat dinning room, there are some small class rooms and seminar rooms."

The plans are still in the development stage. The cost of the project and a starting date have not been announced.
