The Kentucky Capital Planning Advisory Board last week sent out a report identifying eight bond-funded projects totaling $362.3 million as having "exceptional merit." The projects will be considered during the state legislature's upcoming 1994 session scheduled to begin Jan. 4.

The projects are part of $4.54 billion of state capital construction and equipment needs through 1998 identified by the board.

The eight "list A" bond projects comprise: $101 million for a state office building in Franklin County, $100 million for parks revitilization, $56 million for a statewide data network, $46 million for a central library for the University of Kentucky, $35.3 for a medium security prison in Muhlenberg County, $9.3 million for a maximum security mental health facility, $8 million for the Hopkinsville community College, and $6.7 million for a state records services center.
