BLOOMINGTON -

Indiana University's board of trustees has approved a $232 million legislative capital request for 2019-2021. The request includes five priority projects, including $124 million in what the school calls critically-needed repairs and renovations of existing facilities and infrastructure.

The school says its Bicentennial Repair and Rehabilitation Plan will include renovations at research centers and labs in Bloomington and the Health Sciences and Dunlap buildings in Indianapolis. It also involves repair, renovation and infrastructure projects at IU's Richmond, Kokomo, Gary, South Bend and New Albany campuses.

The other priority projects include: $75 million for construction of the IU School of Medicine Research Laboratory Building V in Indianapolis; $15 million for renovations to the School of Dentistry building in Indianapolis; $15 million for renovation of the two original buildings of the former Wishard Hospital campus in Indianapolis, and; $3 million to study space needs for health sciences programs at IU Fort Wayne.

In addition to the request, trustees also approved renovation projects for Ball Residence Hall on the IUPUI campus and the Wells Library in Bloomington. The board also gave the green light to the design for the new International Center building and an updated design for a parking garage and office building in Bloomington.
