The Amarillo College Board of Regents approved the negotiation with the city of Amarillo to buy a piece of land on their West campus to expand the reach of the fire department.
The piece of land being discussed is about 1.4 acres and it sits at the Northeast corner of Southwest 9th Avenue and Quail Creek Drive.
The need came from wanting to expand the city’s blanket of coverage.
The location is ideal for the expansion the city is looking to make for its firefighting services.
Amarillo College says it’s proud to have a role in this important project.
Negotiations for the land will begin as soon as possible, with meetings planned over the next several weeks.
