Master Plan Meeting Set For October 13
A session to explain preliminary recommendations to the revised Master Plan for the Storrs campus will take place on Oct. 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Bishop Center, Room 7.
The meeting will begin with a presentation by JJR LLC of Ann Arbor, Mich., the University's planning consultants, and will be followed by an opportunity for public comment.
The University first developed a campus master plan in 1996 as it began implementing UConn 2000, a 10-year, $1 billion program to renew, enhance and rebuild the campuses. The update is being done in conjunction with 21st Century UConn, a 10-year, $1.3 billion extension of the building program.
Key planning issues to be discussed include identifying locations for the proposed 21st Century building projects, proposals to improve vehicular and pedestrian circulation on campus, and ways to enhance the physical organization of the campus, open space, and institutional identity.
"Comments from faculty, staff, students, and the community have been very helpful to us in the planning process," says Karla H. Fox, co-chair of the master plan committee. "We encourage discussion of and input into the proposals before progress continues."
