ENMU regents OK building demolition

Freedom New Mexico

At their Friday meeting, the Eastern New Mexico University Board of Regents granted permission to hire an architectural firm to tear down the Lincoln Hall residency building and build a new building for freshman residents.

The facility will contain 360 beds. President Steven Gamble said the university still has to obtain permission from the Higher Education Board before hiring a firm. Building is expected to begin at the end of the year.
