The Washburn University Board of Regents met via telephone conference call on Monday, June 26, 2006 at 11:00 a.m. CDT in Morgan Hall Room 204.

I. Call to Order

Chairperson Paul called the meeting to order at 11:03 a.m. in Room 204 of Morgan Hall.

II. Roll Call

Present were: Mr. Blair, Mrs. Lee (via telephone), Mrs. Parks, Mrs. Paul (via telephone) and Mr. Storey (via telephone).

III. New Business

President Farley presented the recommendation to sell two University owned properties, located at 1518 SW Washburn Avenue and 1510 SW 17th Street, to the developers of the College Hill Redevelopment project. He said the University has secured appraisals at the University's expense and believes the appraisals to be fair. He said there are several Deed restrictions recommended pertaining to the properties to assure that future developers will abide by the conditions of the sale.

Mrs. Parks moved, and Mr. Blair seconded, a motion to sell the two University owned properties to the developers of the College Hill project.

Mrs. Paul inquired whether the restrictions are Deed restrictions rather than on the real estate contract. Dr. Farley confirmed that they are Deed restrictions.

Mrs. Lee inquired as to the nature of the Deed restrictions. Dr. Farley explained they pertain to the University's right to approve current and future construction and use of the property.

Mr. Storey stated that he believes the appraisals to be fair.

Mrs. Lee expressed the desire that the landscaping complement the University's appearance at the corner of 17th and Washburn Street.

Mr. Bunten joined the meeting (via telephone) at 11:15 a.m.

Mr. Blair moved, and Mrs. Lee seconded, a motion to amend the original motion to modify the Deed restrictions to require the property owner to maintain the landscaping and appearance of the property in perpetuity and further, that the University would retain the right to intervene to maintain the landscaping if the owner did not do so. The costs would be charged to the owner.

Mr. Storey called the question on the amendment.

The amendment was approved unanimously.

The original motion as amended was approved unanimously.

Mr. Blair moved, and Mrs. Parks seconded, a motion that the University forego that amount of sales tax revenues in the district which exceed those collected in the base year.

Motion was approved unanimously.

Mr. Storey moved, and Mrs. Lee seconded, a motion to accept the bid of Mohan Construction in the amount of $214,000 for the renovation of the leased property at 1313 SW 21st Street to provide space for workshops, offices and storage for Facilities Services.

It was noted that Mohan Construction bid is the lowest of the three bids.

Motion was approved unanimously.

It was moved and seconded to adjourn. The meeting adjourned at 11:36 a.m.
