The U.S. Air Force this week deeded 12 acres of the former McClellan Air Force Base to two school districts and a museum.
The properties were given to Los Rios Community College District, Twin Rivers Unified School District and the Aerospace Museum of California.
The college district runs the Sacramento Regional Public Safety Training Center, a program of American River College, on a 4-acre site. Twin Rivers operates Keema High School on 2 acres. And the museum has a 7-acre property.
The base closed in 2001, and the federal government has leased property to various operations as it goes through the process of transferring property and cleaning up pollution, the Air Force said in a news release Friday.
"Giving them full title to the properties helps them plan long-term operations and keep an ongoing presence here," Phil Mook, senior representative for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, said in the release.
The Air Force said it hopes to complete the transfer of base property next year.
