Houston Community College’s governing board approved the sale of two properties on Feb. 23.

First, they sold about 9 acres of undeveloped land near Highway 288 and MacGregor to the City of Houston for $13.8 million. Second, they sold three parking spaces at the West Loop campus to the Texas Department of Transportation for $32 thousand.

The administration believes that the light fixture will not adversely the rest of the West Loop campus and that the loss of three parking spaces is trivial. The new campus parking garage was recently completed.

As a state agency, TxDOT has the power of eminent domain and acceptance of the $32,384 offer will avoid condemnation proceedings against HCC for the parcel. The trustees approved this sale without
