PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) - Pittsburg State University and the City of Pittsburg have formalized a deal to exchange about 100 acres of land.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1NSsQIo ) that under the deal formalized this week, the city receives about 72 acres in southeast Pittsburg valued at $283,550, and Pittsburg State receives 25.10 acres in one parcel and about 5 acres of land at another site that are together valued at about $283,992.

Pittsburg State President Steve Scott says the land exchange process began nearly two years ago when the city and the university realized they each had land the other could use.

The exchange required nearly 18 months of negotiations and the approval of the Kansas Board of Regents, the Kansas Legislature and the Kansas Attorney General.
