Bridgeport allots 8 acres of land to SHU

Bridgeport officials say they've agreed to sell about eight acres of land to Sacred Heart University.



The school will pay the city $4 million for the woodlands next to the school and the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course.

Officials say the school agreed not to develop or change the land.



The deal also allows Sacred Heart to build a tennis facility that will be accessible to Bridgeport residents.
