RESCISSION O F AUTHORIZATION FOR PURCHASE OF 4 0 3
S O U T H L I N C O L N A V E N U E, URBANA(35) On December 17, 1971, the Board of Trustees authorized a request to the University of Illinois Foundation to purchase the property at 403 South Lincoln Avenue, Urbana. At the time this authorization was requested, it was anticipated that the sale of other Foundation-owned properties would provide the funds necessary for this acquisition. Such sales have not materialized. The owners of 403 South Lincoln Avenue have stated they do not wish to continue negotiations since they desire to be free to make other arrangements for the sale or improvement of the property in the near future. In view of the difficulty experienced in securing funds and the likelihood that this difficulty will continue, the Foundation has terminated its negotiations for the acquisition of this property at this time.
Accordingly, the President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the Board's action on December 17, 1971, be rescinded.
On motion of Mr. Pogue, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.
