The NJ Herald reported that Sussex County Community College celebrated a public signing of the McGuire car dealership property in downtown Newton, after months of "negotiation, environment testing and review." Former owners of McGuire were also in attendance for the purchase/agreement.
Back in July, 2018, SCCC started leasing the former dealership in efforts to eventually purchase it. Plans to use the location for expanding the automotive, building construction and welding programs were in thought.
SCCC's Board of Trustees approved the purchase last month (Dec. 2019).
This new plan will train students within the technical programs at SCCC to allow them to enter the workforce within two years. The training of these students is set to benefit local businesses such as Thorlabs.
For more information on the future plans which will include ADDITIONAL programs at SCCC, read the full article here.
