(16) In September 1992, the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois approved a resolution under the Master Plan for the Chicago campus authorizing the acquisition of certain privately owned land, through negotiation or the power of eminent domain should negotiations to purchase such property fail or if the University is unable to identify and negotiate a purchase agreement with the owners, within the area bounded by Morgan Street, Roosevelt Road, Union Street, and the railroad right-of-way at 16th Street. Subsequent to the approval of that resolution, a contiguous parcel of property was identified as a privately owned parcel which should be included in the board's authorization. The property consists of a portion of a former public alley that was vacated. The president, with the concurrence of the vice president for business and finance, the chancellor at Chicago, and the university counsel, recommends adoption of the following resolution.
