UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Report of Action by the Executive Committee
(30) The following action was taken by the Executive Committee via telephone conference on Thursday, December 9, 1993. This action is now reported to the board as a whole.
Conveyance of Property in Chicago to State of Illinois Department of Central Management Services
In 1973, the Illinois Medical Center Commission conveyed title to approximately 61,824 square feet of land to the University at a nominal price ($1.00). This land is located south of Roosevelt and is bounded by South Damen Avenue and South Ashland Avenue. The site is currently a parking lot which is no longer needed due to the recent construction of a parking garage adjacent thereto. The legal description of the property is as follows: Sub Lots 1 to 23, inclusive, in E.D.L. Wicke's Subdivision of Block 4 of the Subdivision of Section 19, Township 39 North, Range 14 East of the Third Principal Meridian, in Cook County, Illinois Commonly known as: 1901-1953 West Roosevelt Road, Chicago, Illinois. The State of Illinois seeks to build and operate a State Police Forensic Science Laboratory on a site which encompasses this land in order to provide the city, without charge, most of the functions and services performed by the city's existing crime laboratory. This relationship will be set forth in an intergovernmental agreement among the parties, including the University. The location of the laboratory will be beneficial to the campus in two significant ways: (1) it will provide educational and research opportunities for academic programs to affiliate with the laboratory; and (2) it will increase security in the area. The city has agreed to credit the sum of $250,000 toward the purchase of cityowned land east of Halsted and south of Roosevelt in recognition of the University's agreement to cooperate with this endeavor. Accordingly, the University wishes to transfer the land to Central Management Services under the Illinois Property Control Act. Central Management Services will then make the land available for the above purpose. It is therefore recommended that the board declare this land surplus pursuant to and as required by the State Property Control Act and authorize the comptroller to execute such documents and agreements as may be necessary to effect the transfer of this land for the above purpose. Further, that the comptroller be authorized to execute the Intergovernmental Agreement with the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago, the Capital Development Board and the Illinois Medical Center Commission acknowledging the academic benefits that will result from the placement of the laboratory in proximity to the campus and authorizing future academic affiliations between the laboratory and the University. On motion of Dr. Bacon, these recommendations were approved by the following vote of members of the Executive Committee: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mrs. Calder; no, none; absent, Mr. Grabowski.
This report was received for record.
