Currently, there is no available tornado-safe shelter for the students, staff, faculty, residents, and business workers that are within a five-minute radius of this location. This federally funded project will provide the needed shelter in the event of a tornado.
In addition to shelter, the proposed facility will be used as a multi-purpose recreational center for multiple indoor recreational activities such as basketball, volleyball, racquetball, student life activities, concerts, and special events.
The existing basketball court is heavily used by students and the community. An additional court and two sand volleyball courts will be constructed to enhance the recreation area.
