Patrick announces funding for $55M UMass building

Posted 11/11/13

BOSTON – Gov. Deval L. Patrick says a $55 million academic building at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth will receive state funding to support the campus’ growing enrollment.

According to a statement last month, Patrick said the new building will allow for the relocation of several academic programs currently being housed in leased space. The new building will also enable the university to keep pace with “other leading institutions of higher education that demand more research space, specialized classrooms and the ability to take advantage of developments in technology.”

“Growth requires investment, and investing in our education infrastructure and creating more green space will bring opportunity to the residents of the South Coast,” Patrick said. “If we want to expand opportunity in our commonwealth, this is what government must do and do well.”

Patrick also announced the creation of the Fall River Signature Park, 1.5-mile trail that will be constructed along the Quequechan River, converting the former Watuppa Secondary rail line into a multiuse trail offering outdoor recreation right in the heart of downtown Fall River. The statement said the park will be elevated on existing rail embankment and trestle in the middle of the Quequechan River for much of its length in Fall River, allowing users views of the river and wildlife. •
