The College of Western Idaho Board of Trustees approved a motion to move forward with closing on the 32.5 acres on the north boundary of the Nampa Campus between the Academic Building and Cherry Lane. The decision was based on the completion of due diligence that included an appraisal of the land. The College anticipates closing within the next two weeks for a total cost of $815,000.
“This property will be a great addition to the Nampa Campus,” said Trustee Stan Bastian. “As we continue to develop our campus and serve more students, the land provides flexibility for future growth and connection with the North on Cherry Lane.”
The parcel of land will become part of the College’s Nampa Campus Master Plan designed to support growth through 2040. The College does not have any immediate development plans for the land, but long term the College anticipates adding a north entrance/exit point onto Cherry Lane as the campus is developed out.
