LANSING – State Rep. Vanessa Guerra (D-Saginaw) said today that she is pleased that her bill, House Bill 5284, to help Delta College with their Saginaw Center Downtown Campus project has passed and is on its way to the governor for his signature. The bill conveys a strip of land on Baum Street, which has been closed for a number of years, to the city of Saginaw for $1. The city of Saginaw will convey that land to Delta College.  

“This is the final piece of land that Delta College needs for the Saginaw Center project, which will result in a new facility that will include high-level technology, special-use training rooms, active-learning classrooms, and basic science and computer labs,” said Guerra. “I thank my colleagues for their support of Delta College and its mission to deliver the best education opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities to its students.”

The land will be used for a green space and a water reclamation area with shrubs and grasses next to what will be the Saginaw Center facility.
