Member Spotlight…Polaris Career Center

Each month, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce chooses a different member to be the “Spotlight” for that month.  That member submits an article highlighting themselves and their business and what they provide to the Brooklyn community.  If you would be interested in being featured in an upcoming month, please let us know. 

The New Polaris is NOW!

Since the Polaris permanent improvement levy passed in the fall of 2016, we have carefully laid the groundwork for the fifty plus million dollar renovation of our entire Middleburg Heights campus.  Construction officially began in April of 2018.  Since then, the second and third floors have been demolished and renovated along with the heavy trades labs on the first floor.  In February of this year, the Center Café officially opened and began providing food service for our students and staff.  Our retail area, which houses the new bakery, restaurant and salon, has been completely transformed and will welcome customers beginning in the fall of 2019.  Currently, our construction efforts are focused on the new Criminal Justice/Adult Police Academy lab, the building exterior, entrances and parking lots, the commons at the center of the building and staff office spaces.  All labs and classrooms will be completed by the start of the 2019-2020 school year.  We anticipate that ALL construction will be completed in October of 2019 – TWO months ahead of schedule!  We are thrilled with how the renovation has progressed and are excited about the opportunities these new state-of-the-art spaces will create for our students and employer partners.

None of this would have been possible without YOU – our residents, business and community partners, loyal parents and alumni.  Our future is BRIGHT!  We encourage you to stay connected and monitor our construction progress on polaris.edu and on of all Polaris social media channels.
