AUSTIN, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – June 22, 2010 – Austin Community College announced it had purchased property at Highway 183A and C.R. 269 in Leander May 13. Leander Realtor Rocky Breon says a campus in Leander will contribute to the city’s growth.
“Although ACC has not released their plans for the property, I see this as a positive sign that Leander and its surrounding communities are growing and will be offering more educational options to their citizens in the future,” says Breon.
The property is located near the new MetroRail Red Line, the last stop on the line that runs to downtown Austin.
“The location of ACC’s property is perfect for students commuting to and from Austin,” says Breon. “This move to secure property in Leander by ACC is just another indication that the area is becoming a better place for its citizens to live, work and play.”
Leander is in ACC’s taxing district and is currently served by the Cypress Creek Campus and Leander High School. ACC has seven campuses around the Austin area and more than 41,000 credit students enrolled in the spring 2010 semester. On May 18, ACC announced it had entered into a contract to purchase 98 acres in the city of Elgin.
“ACC’s land-banking strategy is a forward-looking effort to acquire potential campus sites within the college’s 7,000-square mile, 8-county service area,” says Dr. Stephen B. Kinslow, ACC president/CEO in a news release. “Changing demographics as well as increasing demand for workforce degrees and certificates are driving dramatic enrollment increases.”
The ACC District includes the Austin, Leander, Manor, Del Valle, and Round Rock school districts, as well as the city of Austin. Hays ISD, Bastrop ISD, Elgin ISD, McDade ISD and San Marcos CISD are all considering joining the district.
