B1 Marketplace B8 Mayor pushing ( ) i concert hall at UV CONCERTED EFFORT Joe Nelson, mayor of Orem City, is behind an effort to construct a 2000-seat concert and event hall on new UVSC property. By Cydney Finch News Reporter ' UVSC may build a new entertainment facility on campus that will benefit both Utah County residents and Utah Valley students. An idea proposed by Orem Mayor Joe Nelson to build a concert hall at UVSC has been discussed with UVSC President Kerry Romesburg who feels the facility would be a great asset to both Orem and UVSC. "Utah County needs a concert hall because there is no good place for a group of 2,000 to view a musical or theatrical production,"Romeshurg ... said. Event facilities in Utah County such as the Provo Tabernacle, SCERA Shell, and BYU are currently used for theatrical productions. However, none are a mid-range facility that would serve a crowd size of 2,000. "BYU will not allow Sunday productions and is too crowded, weather causes the SCERA Shell outdoor theater to be an occasional problem, and the Provo LDS Tabernacle doesn't seat enough," Romesburg said. Although UVSC recently built the 8,000-seat McKay Events Center, it's main purpose is for the use of large concerts, conventions, trade shows, and athletic events. It was not designed for the use of cultural activities including the ballet, theater, musical, or symphony productions. "Instead of being built to fill large capacities of people as does the McKay Center, the concert hall would be designed specifically for acoustically perfect sound and stage purposes," Romesburg said. Although the concert hall would be a fairly expensive project to take on, proposed ideas to fund the venue have included raising money through the city of Orem and receiving donations. While no final plans have been approved, Romesburg mentioned he and Nelson had gone so far as to discuss a possible location for the concert hall, which would be on the north side of campus, south of 800 South, on 16 acres of recently donated land. The best advantage to this location is that it would be accessible from the freeway. President Romesburg felt UVSC would be the most beneficial location for a concert hall because parking would already be available, land wouldn't have to be bought since it is already owned by Orem and students will find an advantage to having the concert hall at UVSC because classes could be held there.

By Mike Slaugh News Reporter Students cruising through the main hall of the automotive buifding who feel the need to answer nature's call may be in for a bit of a surprise next semester when they find that their favorite resting place has been transformed into three new classrooms. The once sizable bathroom is in the process of being remolded. Next semester when it re-opens, students will find that chalkboards have replaced mirrors, stalls were given the boot to make room for desks, and the sexes have been integrated into to same room. The construction plans call for the creation of three new classrooms, a computer lab and, to accommodate the needs of the students, a smaller bathroom The three new classrooms will be used by general studies as well as trades and technology classes. Each classroom should hold about 35 students. The change comes in response to the massive overcrowding that has been experienced at UVSC.
