Trustees approve land acquisition

July 25, 1997

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University Board of Trustees July 25 authorized the administration to execute documents to acquire the property housing the Kalamazoo Psychiatric Hospital, which adjoins WMU's East Campus along Oakland Drive and Howard Street.

The state Legislature authorized the transfer of the property late last year. It includes about 120 acres and 20 buildings. The Department of Community Mental Health will lease a portion of the facilities for the operation of the hospital for a nominal fee.
