TEXAS CITY - First Baptist Church-Texas City’s decision to sell its property on Ninth Ave. “will be a good thing for everybody,” church leaders said.

The Texas City Independent School District has been looking at creating an industrial trades education center. 

The school district has about $14 million set aside in its earmarked facilities reserve fund to pay for the construction of the center.“If everything goes well, we’ll probably close sometime in June,” Rev. Robert Miller said. “That’s when they’ll start taking our building down.”

The Industrial Trades Center would have about 200 students but would double in size the following year.

The 34,000-sf center across the street from the high school eases potential transportation hassles.

Texas City would offer courses in construction, welding and pipe fitting, automotive technology, machinist training and instrumentation and electrical trades.

There also would be maritime-specific courses offered.

All are trades that industrial facilities will need in their workforces during the next decade or more.
