GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Garden City Community College plans to spend $2.2 million to improve its athletic facilities.

The college says the project will allow it to re-establish its track program, which was discontinued in 2007.

The college's board of trustees on Tuesday authorized the project, which will include an eight-lane collegiate track and football and women's soccer fields.

The Garden City Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/15JX5jt ) the improvements will be made at the site of the current track next to the Tangeman Sports Complex.

College president Herbert Swender says the project will be funded by the school's general fund, increased student tuition and fees, and donations.

The school hopes to have the project completed by Aug. 16.
