EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A report conducted by two architectural firms says more than $34 million in repairs and upgrades are needed at a West Texas community college.

The firms will create a master plan to prioritize the needs at each of the five campuses of El Paso Community College. The plan also will detail services needed for a new campus the college intends to build at the Fort Bliss Army post.

The El Paso Times reports (https://bit.ly/1zFsumu ) the assessment comes as the college projects enrollment to grow to 45,000 students in 12 years. The school has about 29,000 students now.

Officials say campuses lack gathering space for students, have small classrooms, outdated heating and cooling systems, and other problems.

The college has not yet developed a plan to pay for the improvements.
