KETCHIKAN- A building is being transformed into work space and dorms for the Southern Southeast Alaska Technical Development Center.


The Ketchikan Indian Community is behind the $2.2 million project to transform the 15,600-square-foot structure that formerly housed Community Connections.


The building is next to the center's vocational center.


The building will provide affordable short- and long-term living units to training participants on the upper level. The lower level will host social service departments to address workforce requirements and other issues.


The goal is to have the project completed by March.
