BC3 purchases 6.15 acre property

January 31, 2012

Two weeks ago, the College Board of Trustees approved a purchase of a 6.15 acre property that is adjacent to the College. The property has long been identified in our Master Planning Process as a key acquisition for the College.

Careful planning and smart business practices make such a purchase a reality.

There are lots of possibilities for the property, including: storage in a three-stall garage and barn, expansion of our current Children’s Creative Learning Center, and new ingress and egress into campus, office space, and community usage.

The closing for the property is still a month away. Click here to read more about this acquisition and stay tuned for more news on the transformation!
