FEMA Approves Safe Room/Activities Center in Dodge City

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — A tornado shelter/student activities center at Dodge City Community College is one step closer to reality.  The college's foundation announced Monday that the federal government had approved an application for $491,000 to help fund the structure.  College Foundation Director Roger Proffit says the approval means the college can begin construction of the monolithic domed structure.  The Dodge City Daily Globe reports supporters are conducting a five-year, $5 million fundraising campaign for the activities center. With the federal grant, current donations and pledges, about $1.5 million is still needed.  Besides providing a community shelter during severe storms, the center will include a walking track, wellness center and aerobics room. It also will have a student activities room and all collegiate basketball and volleyball games will be played there.
