A proposed three-building campus in Boise for College of Western Idaho would house business and technology classes along with a full array of instruction studenst would need to transfer to a four-year institution such as Boise State University.

College of Western Idaho leaders say they hope to have the first building, at 150,000-square-foot structure, ready for students by 2020. However trustees haven’t completed a plan on how to pay for the structures. Combined with a proposed expansion at the school’s Canyon County campus, the total cost is an estimated $180 million, said Bert Glandon, CWI president.

CWI unveiled its plans Tuesday on the proposed site at 3150 W. Main St., where the Bob Rice Ford dealership was located.
