Hancher Auditorium may be demolished this year if University of Iowa officials receive final obligation in April from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Designs for a new Hancher are being completed, and the building is set to have its front facing south, instead of north — as it had been previously.

The new Hancher site would sit 7 feet above the 500 year flood plain.

Parts of the Art Building may also be razed, but the parts of the building, built in 1936, are designated as historic by FEMA.
