RocketKids Article

The New College of Florida Board of Trustees unanimously approved an agreement to receive the donation of a nine-acre parcel from Manatee County on February 22. The land donation, which first came before the Board at its October 2023 meeting, was unanimously approved by the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners on February 13. “This land will be important for the rapid growth New College will experience over the next several years, allowing us to immediately plan for New College to meet its residential honors college mission while increasing the student population” said Richard Corcoran, President of New College. “The Manatee County Commission has been wonderful to work with and I’m grateful for their support of New College’s efforts to become America’s top liberal arts college.” The donated land is waterfront property located on the northern portion of the Powel Crosley Estate, north of the existing New College campus. New College is currently engaged in updating its Campus Master Plan, and the latest drafts shared at a public hearing last month call for a pair of student residence halls on the property. A copy of the full donation agreement can be viewed online at ncf.edu/bot. For more information about the New College Campus Master Plan, visit ncf.edu/masterplan.
