Business donates its parking lot to CCC

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers has donated the use of its customer parking lot at 3201 W. Pulaski Highway in North East to Cecil Community College for its Truck Driver Training Program.

The 14-acre parking lot contribution is an open-ended agreement without an expiration date.

The earliest CCC anticipates beginning using the space is next summer.

"It would be a multimillion-dollar proposition to construct a truck driver training range in a commercial area," said CCC President W. Stephen Pannill. "Thanks to this donation, the taxpayers win, the environment wins, the transportation and logistics industry and all of us who have goods and services delivered by truck win."
