UGA to tear down aging structures around the state

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) The University of Georgia is set to tear down as many as 155 aging and surplus structures around the state in an effort to cut costs. <br /> <br /> Morris News Service reports (http://bit.ly/1nmI6Ay ) none of the structures are on the university's main campus in Athens. <br /> <br /> Bob Shulstad is the associate dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. He says the buildings are ``old, inefficient, and in some cases dangerous.'' They include barns, tractor sheds and chicken houses. <br /> <br /> Some also are former residences of families who donated land, and those will face a review to determine any historical significance. <br /> <br /> The Board of Regents has signed off on the plan, which still needs approval from the State Properties Commission. Officials hope to have the project completed by the end of 2016.
