The renovation of Thompson Hall at Ellsworth Community College will be a “bare bones” project, designed to improve accessibility while keeping costs as low as possible to avoid pricing students out of one of the most affordable on-campus housing options.

At a meeting Wednesday afternoon in Iowa Falls, the Iowa Valley Community College District Board of Directors approved plans and specifications for the project, which is part of the district’s larger capital projects plan that’s being funded by $32 million in bonds that were approved by voters in 2019.
