NorthWest Arkansas Community College is buying a section of railroad land that runs through the campus. The board agreed in January to spend $2.5 million on the land about 60 feet wide and 1 ¼ miles long. It’s owned by the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad. Debi Buckley, senior vice president for administration services and chief financial officer, said the deal is in the lawyers’ hands. She said the college hopes to finalize the deal within 60 to 90 days.
