Interesting! That is more generic than simply civic_admin - one would
not expect the primary land use of a school or a hospital to be
"administration". When/to whom is this classification significant?

In this case, the city council happen to be the users of the property, but if they need to downsize for whatever reason and a particular building gets a new tenant, will the land use change? I wouldn't have thought so.
