Muskegon Community College has signed a purchase agreement with The Herald Publishing Co. LLC and the owners of the former Muskegon Chronicle building, 981 Third St., to buy the building and an adjacent parking lot.

The announcement was made during a special meeting of the MCC Board of Trustees on Thursday, Sept. 11.

The identification of a downtown campus is a component of the College’s 2010-15 Facility Master Plan and is one of four projects approved by the voters in the November 2013 election.

“The Board of Trustees has evaluated several locations for the Downtown campus,” said MCC Board of Trustees Chair Donald Crandall. “After much discussion, the Board feels that the Chronicle Building best fits our needs for housing the Applied Technology and Entrepreneurial Studies programs and, at this time, will have the greatest impact on downtown development.”
