The area is bounded by Bluford Street to the south, Dudley Street to the west, Lindsay Street to the north and Laurel Street to the east.

Perkins said construction could begin no earlier than the end of 2022, due to necessary preliminary steps such as planning, design and seeking bids from construction companies.

The advanced stage will include seeking more input for the design from students, faculty and staff.

In addition to the money for recreation facilities, the A&T Board of Directors also approved $ 250,000 for the War Memorial Stadium renovations.

The historic stadium, named in memory of the First World War, is located near campus at the corner of Lindsay and Yanceyville streets.

The State Council approved the transfer of War Memorial Stadium to the university on June 6, according to Perkins. School leaders plan to receive the deed of ownership soon and to start renovations in January or February.

The A&T baseball team are already playing at the stadium, Perkins said.

Perkins said the university wanted to improve the seating and the area under the seats, and do electrical and storm drainage renovations.

Renowned buildings

Also on Friday, the board approved the renaming of two campus buildings in honor of prominent alumni after voting to remove their old names just over a year ago.
