A New “Green” Home

A computer-generate northwest view of the proposed Creative Arts Building design.

Thanks to the support of Haywood County residents who voted in support of the ¼ cent sales tax for facility needs at the College last year, plans are in the works for a new Creative Arts Building to be built on the HCC campus. The new building will house curriculum professional crafts programs as well as continuing education classes such as art, wood carving, jewelry and lapidary. The HCC Board of Trustees is finalizing plans for the building and construction is expected to begin in late spring 2010. The building is being designed to LEED standards and will contain many “green features”-some of which are listed below.
