Two months after announcing it, Fort Mac board votes to approve building sale for FDA


An announcement from Fort Mac in June was clear: the agency was making a $17 million building sale. Federal scientists and staff would move into a disused command building.

That sale has just now gotten the 10-1 approval, with one abstention, of the board of the McPherson Implementing Local Redevelopment Authority.

But the board still has yet to take any action on the question of a developer who has in sight the bulk of the roughly 144 acres of the former fort.
