Clark Revitalization

"A Transformed Clark"

With initial legislative support of $38 million and second year funding of $24 million, the Clark Building has begun its revitalization. Over the next 3-4 years, and subsequent funding approvals, the Clark Building will be transformed from a place of transactions to a place worthy of the 21st century education that occurs within its walls.

This website contains information about move out, phases of construction, stories of Clark and the people within it, and more. It will be updated regularly throughout the revitalization process.
