A developer with Badger Mountain South told us the school district signed a purchase agreement Wednesday morning for land near the development.
Richland has been on the hunt for land to build a new middle school. It had announced a deadline of Monday to make that happen.
The Richland School Board won't confirm if this land is for a middle school and wouldn't confirm the purchase. It would only say there is a feasibility study being done.
The developer told KEPR the purchase should be closed by late spring.
