James Madison University plans to acquire an undeveloped 60-acre parcel in Harrisonburg.
The university's Board of Visitors on Friday approved buying the property for $4.3 million. The property is about 2 miles south of the campus.
James Madison spokesman Bill Wyatt tells The Daily News-Record that there are no immediate plans for the property.
Wyatt says property will provide flexibility to accommodate future growth on James Madison's main campus.
