  • Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement (HEAPR) -- $90,000

  • Ambulatory Care Clinic -- $200,000,000

  • Old Main Utility Building renovation -- $81,000,000

  • Itasca Biological Station and Labs -- $6,090,000

  • Eddy Hall & Space Optimization -- $21,000,000

They've discussed maintenance-cost savings of the renovations as well the need for expansions and new buildingsl, but appear to agree with the list above.

They'll review it again next month.
