Satellite Campus for College(s) Downtown
Incorporation of a college campus and potentially dorms in the downtown Panama City area. Both of the local college campuses are limited in space and expanding to a satellite campus would allow for additional growth while infusing student life downtown, creating an economic impact in the community instead of an isolated campus. Savannah accomplishes this with SCAD and the culture is greatly enhanced with the presence of youthful energy and the artistry of their students. Downtown has the space and availability to accomplish this goal. The location would also facilitate having a “walkable” campus area that includes restaurants, shops, entertainment. This would be potentially very attractive to a student. If the downtown corridor continues to push towards a technology cluster than the campus could be in a related area.
