The Iowa City City Council voted to allow for a voluntary annexation of land for the Moss Green Development at Tuesday’s meeting.

The land is approximately 132 acres located near the intersection of Highway 1 and Interstate 80.

Jeff Davidson, the director of planning and community development, said the developers offered to pay for utility infrastructure and utility access, “ a large financial commitment.” It was in the city’s best interest to annex the property, he said.

The block of land will be used for the Moss Green Urban Village Development, a business park built using environmental sustainability methods.

“We are happy to approve it,” Councilor Connie Champion said.
