Taft College Mulling Plans to Move Athletic Complex

Taft College may have to move its athletic complex off campus within the next 20 years to grow on its 39-acre main campus.

Executive vice president Brock McMurray said the school is thinking about building new dorms, parking and academic facilities in place of its current ball fields and gym.

“We’re looking at expanding our footprint with new educational facilities, lab space and instructional space,” he said.

McMurray said the school’s student population has grown by about a third since 2005. That number will grow by at least by another 10 percent by 2025.
