Recently we have had the good fortune of purchasing adjoining properties at 1211 and 1215 Texaco Road. The implementation of a campus wide management plan, the first stage being the re-development of the properties, will occur within the next two years. The outcomes will focus on student safety, improved traffic flow, parking, and ecologically sound practices.
