CIRCLING THE WAGONS: George said yesterday that he would "like to break ground" on the school's $143M facilities upgrade project "within the next two months," despite the school being about $20M short of its $50M fundraising goal. George: "I would anticipate that it would be some point in April. This is a very aggressive schedule. ... I believe that we need to build things as quickly as we can and we need to do it the right way. It's doable." George "wouldn't give an actual number that CU has raised." In Boulder, Brian Howell notes George has "told donors that CU is targeting a groundbreaking to coincide with the April 12 spring football game." CU has selected Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction and K.C.-based Populous as the "design/build team for the project" (Boulder DAILY CAMERA, 2/20).
