Ivy Tech planning new central Indiana site

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Ivy Tech Community College is planning to open a new classroom site in the central Indiana city of Frankfort.

College and local officials announced plans Monday for the city and Clinton County governments to buy a downtown building now housing The Times newspaper offices and build parking for the Ivy Tech site.

Mayor Chris McBarnes says the project will bring needed training opportunities to the city and bring more people into the city's downtown business district.

Officials for Indianapolis-based Ivy Tech expect the new site to open in the fall of 2013 and appeal to many of the 500 or so Clinton County residents now taking classes at the school's Lafayette campus.

McBarnes says the city is working to help find a new downtown location for the newspaper's offices.
