LIBERTY - A new multipurpose building is planned by the Casey County Cooperative Extension Service.
The Extension District Board voted Wednesday to construct a 3,300 square foot building across the parking lot from the current extension office, according to Fred Harper, chairman of the board. The building will have a large meeting room, commercial-type kitchen, two storage rooms, and a combination mechanical-storage room.
Harper said the building is designed with a roof line and brick to match the current building. The building also is designed for future expansion. Architecture Plus of Georgetown is in charge of the design.
The multipurpose room will be three times bigger than the current conference room. Harper said it will accommodate 250 people in a theatre-type setting and 130 for a sit-down meal.
