Columbia's City Council meeting room was filled to overflowing with representatives from local government and education supporting the Adair School District application for a Community Development Block Grant (CBGD) to fund a new Community Learning Central/Central Office Building.
The proposed learning center would serve students in the Adair School District during the day and, through Somerset Community College, offer evening education for adults.
Judy Keltner, Associate Director for Community/Economic Development with the Lake Cumberland Area Development District, led the hearing and recorded volunteers who wanted to speak on the record in favor of the grant application and the good it would do helping students gain abilities to have a head start on their careers.
All council members were present at the meeting following the hearing and voted unanimously to approve resolution 2016-05 authorizing Mayor Curtis Hardwick to enter into and file the CDBG application to the Department for Local Government.
