Meetings On Master Plan
Scheduled For This Week

The campus community will have three opportunities next week to review and comment on preliminary recommendations from the master planners.

The opportunities include a Parking Committee meeting and a meeting of the Master Plan Advisory Committee, both scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 25, and a public meeting scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 26.

The meetings will focus on preliminary master plan recommendations for the main campus, including parking and transportation recommendatio ns. The master plan for the campus is being revised to accommodate 21st Century UConn, a $1.4 billion, 10-year program that begins in July. The program is a successor to the UConn 2000 program, a $1 billion program that concludes in June 2005.

Presentations on the preliminary plan will be made by consultant Steve Troost of JJR of Ann Arbor, Mich., who will comment on the overall plan, and subcontractors Barbara Chance of Chance Management Advisors of Philadelphia, who will focus on transportation and parking, and Barry Svigals of Svigals + Partners of New Haven, who will focus on architectural design.

Final plans for the campus will be completed after input is received from the public.

The Parking Committee meeting will take place on Feb. 25 from noon to 2 p.m.; the Master Plan Committee will take place on Feb. 25 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Both meetings will provide a limited opportunity for comment from the public.

The public meeting will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 26 and will include both presentations from the consultants and time for questions, answers, and comments.

All three meetings will take place in Bishop Center, Room 7.
