Armory will use the parcel to expand parking for members and equipment
Months after being approached about the potential sale of a parcel of property, Montcalm Community College will be parting ways with a small strip on its Greenville campus.
During Tuesday’s MCC Board of Trustees meeting, the board voted unanimously, with Trustee Bob Marston unable to vote due to attending the meeting virtually, to sell a piece of property on the college’s Greenville campus to the Greenville Armory.
During its Jan. 11 meeting, the Montcalm Community College Board of Trustees elected its executive committee, made committee appointments and set its 2022 meeting dates.
The board re-elected Chairperson Karen Carbonelli of Gowen to continue serving in the position she has held since 1997. Also re-elected to serve on the executive committee were Vice Chairperson Robert Marston of Sheridan, Secretary Joyce Kitchenmaster of Stanton and Treasurer Kurt Peterson of Sidney.
Prepared to adjourn last week’s monthly meeting of the Montcalm Community College Board of Trustees, Chairwoman Karen Carbonelli was shocked to suddenly find an item, unbeknownst to her, up for a vote by the board.
“Before we do that, madam chairperson, I have one more item I’d like to address,” Vice Chairman Robert Marston said.
1.3-acre parcel on Greenville campus is next to Greenville Armory
A small, vacant parcel of property currently landlocked between four landowners has become a focus of attention at Montcalm Community College (MCC).
The MCC Board of Trustees on Tuesday discussed a portion of the college’s property located within MCC’s Greenville campus on Yellow Jacket Drive, placing a focus on how it may make sense to lease or sell that parcel to a neighboring property.
