Mayland Community College acquired the PineBridge Inn and Coliseum in 2015 with the intention of expanding College facilities and providing the community with a public event space and other services. Architects are working hard to create a unique space that meets the College’s specific needs. Plans for the coliseum include new spaces for cosmetology and massage therapy, gallery, entreprenuership center, an event space that would seat 3,000 people that could be converted to open floor space for festivals, a teaching kitchen, Workforce and Economic Development classroom space, recreational space and classrooms.
The NC Connect Bond, which was passed during the February 2015 elections, will provide funding for Phase 1 of the renovations. Phase 1 includes putting a new roof on the coliseum and opening the cosmetology center. Construction will begin in 2018!
