This is big day for a community college that is getting ready to expand once again.
Pitt Community College will break ground today on three new buildings. One will be a building for classrooms, another to teach construction and industrial technology, and one will house PCC's maintenance operations.
"We know that we need more space at Pitt Community College," PCC President G. Dennis Massey told employees earlier this year. "These buildings aren't the end; we will build more in the future. We don't have the money, yet, but where there's a will, there's a way. The good thing is we have the space [for them on campus]."
The school says the $28 million project will be paid for by revenue from the quarter-cent sales tax that voters approved in 2007.
