The curators shall not sell, trade or otherwise convey or permit the severance of timber, minerals or other natural resources, unless the curators comply with bidding procedures established by rule that mandate notice of the transaction be provided in a manner reasonably calculated to apprise prospective purchasers. Such rule or rules must at a minimum require at least one notice of the transaction be published in a newspaper of general circulation where the resources are located. The curators may act as trustee in all cases in which there be a gift of property or property left by will to the university or for its benefit or for the benefit of students of the university; to condemn an appropriate real estate or other property, or any interest therein, for any public purpose within the scope of its organization, in the same manner and with like effect as is provided in chapter 523 relating to the appropriation and valuation of lands taken for telegraph, telephone, gravel and plank or railroad purposes; provided, that if the curators so elect, no assessment of damages or compensation under this law shall be payable and no execution shall issue before the expiration of sixty days after the adjournment of the next regular session of the legislature held after such assessment is made, but the same shall bear interest at the rate of six percent per annum from its date until paid; and provided further, that the curators may, at any time, elect to abandon the proposed appropriation of property by an instrument of writing to that effect, to be filed with the clerk of the court and entered on the minutes of the court, and as to so much as is thus abandoned, the assessment of damages or compensation shall be void.

2. The curators may, in connection with such projects, enter into written, mutually binding leases or agreements with individuals, businesses, corporations, and professional firms participating in the project for the purpose of expanding business and professional opportunities for students, faculty and graduates of the university and of the area it serves, and for making available to the university the resources and expertise of the business and professional entities participating in the project.

3. The curators may purchase necessary land and may purchase and construct or arrange for or permit the construction of any necessary facilities for such projects, may utilize the power of eminent domain, and may in any other manner acquire and accept in the name of the curators of the University of Missouri suitable land and facilities for such projects, and may enter into business arrangements, including long-term leases, for the development thereof. The curators may also acquire options upon lands to be purchased. Lands and improvements utilized as a part of such projects, so long as they remain a part of a project, shall not be subject to local zoning or local regulatory ordinances; provided that if the project is located within a city or county, the university is required to consult with the city or county, prior to board of curators' approval of the master development plan or substantial amendments thereto. The city or county plan commission may hold and complete a public hearing on such plan within forty-five days of submission to the city or county and the city or county within fifteen days thereafter may issue its advisory recommendations to the curators. The curators may in their sole discretion require that project development conform to the planning, transportation, environmental, health and safety requirements of such city or county. Interests in property included in such projects may be conveyed as needed, without passage of a concurrent resolution as provided by the provisions of section 172.020. The utilization of the real property, as provided in subsection 1 of this section, is hereby deemed to be a public purpose and in furtherance of the purposes of the university.

5. Whenever the curators' acquisition of land for such a research, development and office park project will result in displacement, relocation assistance and monetary benefits identical to those provided by subchapter II of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, 42 U.S.C. 4621 et seq., and its implementing regulations shall be afforded to each displaced occupant or entity.

6. Notwithstanding the exemption of the curators of the University of Missouri from municipal regulation and the provisions of subsection 3 of this section, any entity acting pursuant to a lease or cooperative agreement with the curators may request that permits, licenses and certificates be issued by a city or county where a project is to be located in order to aid in the construction, operation and financing of such project. Such permits, licenses and certificates may be issued by the city or county after review and approval of plans submitted by an architect or engineer licensed to practice in the state of Missouri. Any entity may also request that inspections be conducted by such city or county if such activities are normally performed by the city or county in the enforcement of its building code.

7. Such doctrines of sovereign and official immunity and the public duty doctrines as now exist for the issuance of permits, licenses, certificates and performance of inspections shall apply to any city, county or official or employee thereof issuing permits, licenses, and certificates or performing inspections pursuant thereto with respect to any claim brought for damages as a result of the wrongful or negligent issuance of such permit, license or certificate or the performance of inspections.

8. The exemption from assessment and taxation provided by subsection 3 of this section for leaseholds in property owned by the university in a research park project shall not be available for leases entered into from and after August 28, 1996. Notwithstanding the foregoing and any provision of this section to the contrary, all leaseholds in property in such parks leased by the university to tenants for research, development, office or any other nonrecreational use prior to August 28, 1996, including leaseholds created after August 28, 1996, under options or similar rights which were granted prior to January 1, 1996, shall be exempt from assessment and taxation for the term of such lease, provided that leaseholds in property used for recreational purposes shall be subject to assessment and taxation as determined by the assessor of the local political subdivision, and all lands and improvements in such parks, by whomsoever owned.

172.287. 1. The University of Missouri shall annually request an appropriation under capital improvements, subject to availability of funds, for a program of grants established for the engineering colleges of the University of Missouri for the purpose of assisting such colleges in the purchase of teaching and research laboratory equipment exclusive of laboratory or classroom furniture. The amount granted for each engineering college may not exceed the lesser of an amount equal to one thousand two hundred dollars per each such bachelor's degree awarded in the previous fiscal year in all engineering programs currently accredited by the accreditation board for engineering and technology, or the dollar value of new funds for equipment purchase which such colleges may obtain from sources other than state appropriations for laboratory equipment.

2. For purposes of this section, the fair market value of in-kind contributions of laboratory equipment to the colleges may be included as funds for equipment purchase from sources other than state appropriations. In the event that new funds for laboratory equipment purchase obtained by any college of engineering from such nonstate sources exceed the amount necessary to reach the maximum dollar limits herein specified, such excess amounts will be carried over to the following fiscal year and considered the same as that year's new equipment funds from nonstate sources.

3. In the event that the appropriations for this grant program are insufficient to fund all grants approved for a given fiscal year, all such grants shall be reduced pro rata as necessary.

4. The provisions of this section shall terminate on June 30, 2017.

2. All lands acquired by the state of Missouri for the use of the agricultural and mechanical college pursuant to the act of the general assembly of February 24, 1870, may be used for such purposes as the board of curators of the University of Missouri determines are in the best interest of the university including the power to transfer title thereto as provided by subsection 3.

3. The curators of the University of Missouri, if it determines that the intended use of the land is in the best interests of the University of Missouri, is authorized and empowered to transfer and convey title in fee simple to any portion or portions of the land to any department, agency, subdivision or instrumentality of the state of Missouri or to the United States or any department thereof for such consideration as it deems proper. The consideration need not be monetary but may be benefits to be derived by the university from the use of the land by the grantee.

4. Any such conveyance of the land shall be executed in the name of the curators of the University of Missouri, signed by the president of the board of curators with the seal of the corporation attached thereto, and attested by the secretary of the board of curators.
