University of Mississippi Medical Center expansion

Posted: Updated:

The public is invited to voice their thoughts about ongoing expansion on the campus of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Among many additions, university officials hope to begin construction on several buildings within three years. That includes a new school of medicine and a research complex.

In the meantime, the focus is on constructing a proposed 11-hundred space parking garage.

A legislative advisory committee is meeting with the public today to discuss the proposed project and three possible bidders.

"They will be taking questions from the public. They'll look at the proposals that are in and then take those comments, and that'll move us through the process," said UMMC Chief Administrative Officer Dr. David Powe.

That meeting is taking place today in UMMC's student center.

The public is invited to attend.
