DOVER, Del. (AP) - A state panel is meeting to consider requests for millions of dollars in funding for infrastructure costs tied to various development projects around Delaware.

Among the issues to be considered Thursday by the state Infrastructure Investment Committee was a request for $7.5 million for a proposed data center and power plant at the University of Delaware's STAR Campus, once the site of a Chrysler assembly plant.

The panel also is being asked for almost $4 million for infrastructure needs for the College Park commercial development project in Georgetown.

The panel also will consider a request for up to $563,000 for a Delaware AeroSpace Education Foundation geothermal system project in Kent County, and $137,000 for infrastructure improvements at the Milton and Hattie Kutz assisted living facility in New Castle County.
