Allen Community College trustees met last week to form a planning committee as they start taking steps to build a new activity center.
Brian Counsil, who serves as Vice President for Finance and Operations, said administrators met Wednesday and formed an eight-person committee who will meet with a design/build company this week to draw out what the school wants.
