The former Dana College campus could have a new tenant soon.  Tonight Blair's City Council heard a proposal from Grace University.

Grace University in Omaha would take over part of the campus under a plan presented Monday night to the Blair City Council.

Dana College closed in 2010, leaving more than 500 students without a school and dozens of professors without jobs.

The proposed Grace campus would take over the bulk of the buildings.  Good Shepherd Lutheran would use five other acres to expand a senior care facility it operates in Blair.

The City Council took no action.
