PHSC purchases additional land for Spring Hil campus

SPRING HILL — Pasco-Hernando State College's Spring Hill campus, which opened in August 2010, could be getting a bit bigger.

Earlier this month, the college's board of trustees approved a land purchase contract of roughly $1 million that would expand the campus by about 75 acres. If everything goes according to plan, the college will close on the deal in September.

College spokeswoman Lucy Miller said PHSC anticipates it will need to expand and that the chance to purchase the adjacent acreage was too good to pass up.

"The college was presented a very good opportunity to purchase the land at a very attractive price, and administration and the (trustees) felt that neither the land nor the price would be available in the future," Miller wrote in an email.

She said the land will remain vacant for now, but likely will be built upon in the future.

The property, at 5379 Hunter's Lake Road, consists of four parcels. Part of the acreage borders Hunter's Lake. It is being purchased from the Takahe Corp., Conner Family Properties and Conner Family Partnership.

The purchase price is $1,025,000, excluding the cost of due diligence testing and examinations.

The sellers signed the contract April 18.
