Across New Mexico Capital Outlay funds will boost local economies and spur construction jobs via campus renovation and upgrade projects.  There are a total of 75 campus facility and infrastructure projects which will be funded via the $294 million capital outlay bill signed June 17.

These will be initiated in every corner of the state from Silver City to Roswell to Taos to Portales.

One of the biggest projects, which was proposed two yearrs ago, the new football stadium for the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds, will break ground soon.  The old stadium was located too far from campus, ten miles away.  The special session of the NM Legislature this year awarded $515,000 for the new stadium.

University of New Mexico’s Gallup campus will recieve $350,000 to build a new tech career center.  WEstern New Mexico University in Silver City will receive $900,000 to esign and plan renovations for the two story Harlan Hall, a science building.

In Roswell the New Mexico Military Institute will receive $1.5 million for renovations of science classrooms and labs at McClure and Wilson Halls.  Both buildings are at least 70 years old and in dire need of upgrades, facing code issues.   The school has also received $238,000 to build a new review stand at Stapp Parade Field.
