DNR Provides College with Land for New Facility
The Department of Natural Resources announced its approval of a land transfer to Kirtland Community College.
Roughly 128 acres of state-managed forest land will be transferred to the College for the purpose of developing a health sciences center between Grayling and Roscommon. The move was announced at this week’s meeting of the Natural Resources Commission in Lansing.
The DNR transferred the parcel to Kirtland Community College for a nominal fee of $300 to further education and local economic development in the area.
The college anticipates building a regional health sciences facility east of the I-75 interchange on the north side of Four Mile Road. College officials said this location would provide easy access for students, teachers and visitors.
Kirtland Community College President Dr. Thomas Quinn said the new center will be used for training and education in all facets of the medical profession.
