COD Plans Branch in Carol Stream Fire Facility

A technology center and more space for bilingual education will be the focus of a new Carol Stream branch of the College of DuPage.

Officials from the Glen Ellyn-based college say they hope to open the satellite building near Kuhn Road and Thunderbird Trail by the fall of 2004.

"This is very exciting in a number of ways," said Chris Picard, the college's vice president for academic affairs. "We're hoping we can bring some good services to that community. We're looking forward to it."

The educational center will be housed in a soon-to-be-converted fire station that is now occupied by the Carol Stream Fire Protection District.

After the fire district moves to a new station next year, the college will begin extensive interior renovations to the old station to create 12,660 square feet of additional learning space. A year's delay in the construction schedule for the new fire station put the college's project behind.

Picard said new bilingual programs are needed for a growing Hispanic population in northern DuPage County towns such as Hanover Park, Carol Stream, Bloomingdale and Addison.

It's a population that also can benefit from a technology center located closer to their homes, Picard said.

"It will require some relatively extensive remodeling on the interior," Picard said of the new center.
