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 adjacent to 38 acres 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.
