The addendum provides a physical framework for the growth of the campus within which both near- and long-term capital improvement projects can be accommodated. The addendum will also serve as a guide for the location of future buildings as well as landscaping, parking, and circulation routes. In October of 1991, the Board of Trustees acted to confirm their previous authorization of land acquisition and to authorize university counsel to initiate eminent domain proceedings with regard to certain privately owned parcels in the university land acquisition area. The president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, now recommends approval of the addendum as a general guideline for the long-term growth and development of the Chicago campus. Further, it is recommended that the attached resolution1 be adopted to authorize
