NOVEMBER BOND QUESTION WILL HAVE IMPACT ON A VARIETY OF EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY FACILITY PROJECTS
Three campuses belonging to Eastern New Mexico State University are expected to see facility and infrastructure work if the statewide General Obligation Bond C passes in the upcoming November election.
That work will include renovations to research and technology space at the Roosevelt Science Center on ENMU’s main Portales campus, a project for which some $7 million in bond funding is targeted.
That funding will be combined with $8 million from a 2018 bond for the Roosevelt Center project.
An additional $1 million will go for general infrastructure work on the Portales campus.
The school’s Roswell branch campus is in line for $1.8 million in bond funding to put in new LED lighting and security upgrades via the installation of some 350 new surveillance cameras.
An additional $1.5 million will go to ENMU’s Ruidoso campus for what are described as “general infrastructure improvements.”
If approved, Bond C will provide more than $150 million statewide for college, university, and specialty school facility and infrastructure projects across New Mexico.
