Coolidge Center set to close over budget concerns


COOLIDGE, Ariz. (AP) - Central Arizona College's Coolidge Center is scheduled to shut its doors.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports that officials said in an email this week that the center will close Monday due to increasing costs and budgetary concerns. Community Outreach Coordinator Barbara Encinas and Employee Development Director Rob Stephens also said the increased capability of the Cotton Express (bus) to serve students between Coolidge and the Signal Peak Campus also was a factor.

The announcement comes less than a week after the CAC board voted to cut a proposed property tax increase by half, from 34% to 17%.

Encinas recently accepted an award from the Coolidge Chamber of Commerce recognizing the Coolidge Center as 1 of the businesses of the month.
