CWI Buys 10 Acres In Boise
College of Western Idaho trustees have voted to buy the old Bob Rice Ford 10 acres at the corner of Whitewater Park and Main Street for a permanent Boise campus.
CWI will create a committee and talk with the community and neighbors as plans for the college campus develop.
The Idaho Statesman says permanent Boise campus is part of a three building project CWI envisions for its Boise and Nampa campuses. At Nampa, the school wants to build a $35 million health sciences center and concentrate all health classes from across the Treasure Valley. School officials also want to build a student center, with financial aid, advising, counseling, testing and a study commons under one roof, for an estimated $45 million. A Boise campus could cost $70 million.
CWI purchased the land from the Rice Family Trust.at a cost of $8.88 million.
