Ag Facilities Construction

Meridian’s Ag Facility Update

The Meridian Ag facility construction project continues to progress towards the goal of completion in March 2023.  This project includes a 60’ X 100’ building that will house a classroom, a mechanical shop, accessible restrooms for the baseball field and a storm shelter along with a detached 30’ X 60’ fully automated greenhouse.  Following the public groundbreaking ceremony in September, the contractors have worked on getting the site ready including elevation and grading work, utility connections, and completion of the footings and foundation.  This last week, the walls were put in place and the project remains on schedule.  The Meridian Ag Foundation continues with their fundraising efforts for this capital project to ensure that contributions will help cover the costs associated with construction and student use.   This project has been made possible by the Meridian Ag Foundation’s unprecedented effort to secure donations for the project, along with assistance from the City of Macon and other funding sources.   Thank you to everyone in the community for the continued support of the Meridian Ag program.
