UGA moves ahead with Navy school campus plans

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia is moving ahead with plans to occupy the former campus of the Navy Supply Corps School.

Officials say UGA leaders plan to ask the University System Board of Regents next month to approve hiring a company to design and oversee renovations to the campus beginning in June or July.

Lawyers soon will begin drawing up legal documents for a planned March 31 transfer of the property from the federal government to the university system.

Regents were scheduled last week to accept taking over the campus, but canceled their January meeting because of snow and ice. UGA administrators now have asked University System Chancellor Erroll Davis to sign papers authorizing the property transfer.
