A committee of the South Dakota Board of Regents is downsizing a proposed fine arts center project at Northern State University after it came in over budget.
The regents recently discovered the overhaul of the Johnson Fine Arts Center is $4.5 million more than expected.
Architects have been able to trim the budget by eliminating plans for a new black box theater.
The regents agreed Friday in a building committee meeting to hire a construction manager at-risk to shave the additional $2.8 million off the project.
Regent Terry Baloun says the board has to get this project right because it will affect the school for the next 50 years.
