A committee made up of Umpqua Community College students, faculty, city and county leaders, and others are considering options for the campus building where the deadly shooting took place Oct. 1. According to Betty Tamm, the chair of the Snyder Hall Advisory Committee, most people agree that tearing down the building altogether would feel like a defeat. So, the most popular option involves a drastic remodel that will create more community space and fewer entrances in the building.
The committee hopes to reach a decision by January 10 in order to request funds from the legislature to make it happen.
