LIVINGSTON - Officials are moving forward with plans to build a community college in Livingston Parish.

The Louisiana Community and Technical College System says officials plan to build a new college and workforce training center that would offer a wide range of programs, including general education, allied health, welding and technology.

Initial designs call for a 20,000-square-foot campus at a cost of about $5.8 million - $5.13 million of which would come from state funds, and about $700,000 of which would be in private money.

Matkin says officials are looking at building the college on land near the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center in Walker.

Officials hope to enroll more than 3,000 students at the facility.
