B.  Action Items.

1)  Torrence Lytle School, 302 Holbrooks Rd., Huntersville, N.C.

In August 2012 the Commission approved a Request For Proposals to be advertised for the Torrence Lytle property.  The Commission delayed the distribution of the RFP because it believed it might have a prospective buyer.  That buyer has not performed.  Therefore Staff requests that the Committee recommend to the Commission that it move ahead with advertising the RFP.  Staff will oversee this process, and an ad hoc committee will be appointed to review the proposals submitted and formulate a recommendation to the HLC.  This will require a seconded motion from the Committee.
