That was my understanding as well. J Ford is correct
about the University itself being a federal land
grant. But that is not what the complaint is about. It
has many locations outside the University Zoning
District which it is not allowed to have. It also has
things inside the district that it should not have, as
defined by law, and not mentioned or allowed in the
land grant.

UI is also not defined in the U Zone as well according
to Joel Plaskon, but like you said, that is not the

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'll admit that I haven't
read the complaint against the U of I.  That said,
it's my impression that the complaint is against the U
of I for having offices or facilities of some kind
downtown, not the main campus location.  Perhaps the
complainants or their acquaintances could shed some
light on this.
