NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa wants to buy more land in North Liberty.
The Iowa Board of Regents is being asked next week to approve spending nearly $2.2 million for about 22 acres (8.9 hectares) adjacent to 38 acres (15.4 hectares) the university already owns north-northwest of its Iowa City campus.
It’s unclear what the university has planned for the land, and officials have declined to outline the university’s intentions.
A sign that’s long been in place on the 38 acres says a University of Iowa health care facility is “coming soon.”
The 22 acres are owned by a church.
