Page 10 EWU Supplement September 23, 1982 PUB expansion planning continues Even though a ground- breaking date remains un- decided, plans for expansion of the Pence Union Building have been on the drawing table for more than a year. The new expansion plans include a new theatre with a seating capacity of approxi- mately 900, refurbished com- muter lounges and relocation of the book store now located in Isle Hall. According to PUB Director Curt Huff, funding for the $3.3 million project will be accom- plished by the sale of bonds. Though interest on bond rates has recently dropped to 121/z percent, the Associated Stu- dents of Eastern Washington University have been reluc- tant to move ahead on the project until interest rates drop to at least 12 percent. ..... N! ,:, ' ,. ASEWU President Dave Rudy said the final drawing plans for the project should be approved this week. After that, the council will continue to study various options avail- able to them if the interest rates do not go down. At the June Board of Trust- ees meeting, administrators and student government offi- cials studied a variety of ways to finance the project. Presuming 13 to 13.5 percent interest rates the estimated annual debt service is $438,948. Financing for the project comes from a variety of sources on campus. The Housing department contri- butes about $300,000; rev- enues from the bookstore are $100,000 and $85,000 comes from the ASEWU. Old Maintenance Building Approximately $4 from the student activity fees paid quarterly by each student is earmarked for the PUB ex- pansion project. Currently, the ASEWU is pursuing a 20-year bond issue to pay for the project. Soil analysis, and other engineering and architectur- al studies have already been completed. All that remains before the project is under- way is for sale of the bonds to begin. Huff estimated that completion of the project would take about 18 months once the bonds are sold and the ground breaking begins.
