College hopes to lease land, offers land for lease


Remaining acreage

When the RWMH bisected the college’s land on Hwy 180 West, it left a 34-acre tract on its west side and a 7.1-acre tract on its east, Eaton said. Twenty-two acres are for sale.

The college is in the process of entering long-term leases with three different non-profit organizations, each slated to occupy 6-acre tracts carved from the remainder.

The leases, approved by the College Board of Trustees in December, will be granted to the Parker County Committee on Aging for a tract on the east side of the Loop, and the Parker County Livestock Improvement Association and Sheriff’s Posse for tracts on the west side.

The leases are contingent on a ruling from the attorney general, Eaton said, but no roadblocks are anticipated. The terms of the leases have yet to be decided.

Eaton said the sheriff’s posse hopes to expand parking, the Livestock Improvement Association wants to build an indoor facility and the PCCOA plans to construct its new senior center on land leased from the college.

He said Weatherford College students will benefit from educational experiences at each of the sites, through participation in agricultural, geriatric or health-related programs.
