"Since 2000, the community has grown from 7,600 residents to more than 30,000 in 2010. This makes Leander the 37th fastest growing City in the United States (US Census Bureau, 2009)."
The Leander Independent School District community voted to join the ACC District in 1985 with the understanding that a full-time campus would be constructed in the area at the earliest possible time. ACC Timeline. "Construction crews, architects, and engineers working to bring Austin Community College’s San Gabriel Campus to life joined college and community leaders for a topping-out celebration June 7 at the campus site in Leander. Guests commemorated the construction milestone by signing a 30-foot-long steel beam before it was raised and placed at the top of the building framework. A crane lowered the final beam adjacent to a small evergreen tree, a traditional symbol of a successful topping out that’s thought to bring good luck to a building’s future occupants." ACC Newsroom.
