Vacant Arts Guild building on Howard Avenue is one of several locations under consideration
The chancellor of Delgado Community College tells 99.5FM the location of a new culinary school being planned by the college has not been selected yet.
Dr. Monty Sullivan says the vacant Arts Guild building on Howard Avenue near Lee Circle is being considered as a possible location, but it's just one of several.
"We've had conversations now for some time about how we might be able to make that work for all parties involved, but at this point, no final decisions have been made," Sullivan said.
A bill to fund construction of a culinary school has gotten final legislative approval and is awaiting the governor's signature.
Sullivan says it authorizes $10 million in funding with a 12% private match, which means the college will have to raise over $1 million to carry out the project.
He says the opening of a culinary school is about 18 months to two years away.
