Madras is about to get a much needed learning center.  The contract to build the new Central Oregon Community College Madras Campus is awarded to Kirby Naglehout Construction.  Thursday, the COCC Board of Directors awarded the Bend company the bid for the 10,000 foot facility. The building is designed to include four classrooms, including a computer lab and a community room that can hold about 100 people. Most of the money comes from a bond measure that was passed by Central Oregon voters in 2009. Also, Jefferson County is contributing about $230,000, with additional funds coming from the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department. The land was donated to the college by the Bean Foundation of Madras. Construction is expected to begin within the next two weeks and the facility will be open by September.
