Ivy Tech moves to buy 21-acre trailer park.
The Journal & Courier reports that the college's trustees will be asked later this month to approve the $5.8 million purchase of the Point East Mobile Home Community.
Ivy Tech has eyed the land for about 10 years as a solution to the cramped classrooms and lack of lab space brought about by a dramatic increase in enrollment.
Lafayette Chancellor David Bathe said buying the land would signal a new era for the 50-acre campus that opened in 2001. He said the purchase deal could be complete by this summer.
