Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

8 reports and related statements which have been received and those that are to follow be received and filed as a part of the public records of this meeting. His motion was seconded by Dr. Denham, and without dissent, it was so ordered. (See FCR 2 at the end of the Minutes. L. ETV Site Approved Mr. Hillenmeyer, Chairman of the Real Estate Committee, reminded the members of the Board that the Executive Committee at the July 15, 1966 meeting had made available to the Kentucky Authority for ETV approximately 2 1/2 acres of University property opposite the football practice field on Cooper Drive. This action was taken with the stipulation that the exact location and description of the said property would be established jointly by the Authority and the University and submitted to the Board for final approval. The specific description has now been determined and, after pointing the site out on a map provided for that purpose, Mr. Hillenmeyer made the following motion: that (1) the Board authorize the President to execute the necessary documents to convey to the Kentucky Authority for Educational Television a tract of land in Fayette County, Kentucky, presently owned by the University and more particularly described as follows: Beginning at a point 185 feet N 580 06-1/2' W of a point in the east boundary of the property of the University of Kentucky, said point being located 494 feet S 310 53-1/2' W of the intersection of said property line extended, and the center line of Cooper Drive; thence 365 feet N 580 06-1/2' W; thence 335 feet N 310 53 1/2' E; thence 365 feet S 580 06-1/2' E; and thence 335 feet S 310 53-1/2' W to the point of beginning and containing 2. 8066 acres more or less and (2) the President is authorized to provide, to the Kentucky Authority for Educa- tional Television, an easement or easements reasonably necessary for ingress and egress to the site hereinbefore authorized to be conveyed. Mr. Hillenmeyer's motion was seconded by Dr. Denham. In the dis- cussion that followed, Mr. Smith pointed out that Kentucky is one of the first, if not the first state to receive a federal grant to assist in the development of an ETV program. Governor Breathitt commented that the last Legislature had authorized the construction of an ETV network throughout Kentucky and that the program was being implemented as rapidly as possible. The federal grant referred to by Mr. Smith will be most helpful since it provides money to finance the program in forty-four counties of Eastern Kentucky, thereby releasing state money for use in other parts of the state. The Governor added that the impact this program would have on the state would be tremendous.
