Memorandum

From: Ruben Armiñana, President

Subject: Notes from October 27, 1999 Campus Planning Committee Meeting

Status Report on the Campus Master Plan

Deborah DuVall reported that the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed draft of the Revision to the Campus Master Plan had been completed by the consultants, ESA, during the summer and early Fall months and that it was scheduled to be release on November 1, 1999. The public review will close on December 15, 1999, with two public hearings scheduled -- November 29, 7-9:00 p.m. and December 2, noon to 2:00 p.m. Comments would then be addressed in the Final EIR with the goal being to receive approval for the Final EIR at the March 2000 Board of Trustees.

Ms. DuVall then outlined the changes to the proposed revision that had taken place while working with the EIR consultants as a result of directives from the committee at their last spring meeting. Those changes included:

Proposal for Naming the Information Center Clock

Tower Barbara Butler, Interim Library Dean, asked the committee to consider a proposal to name the new Information Center clock tower the Clarence and Julia Leaven Clock Tower in honor of the Leaven's significant financial contribution to the Library. Julia Leaven has established a generous endowment for library acquisitions that will benefit the program well into the future. Mr. Furukawa-Schlereth made the motion, seconded by Mr. Goldstein and unanimously agreed by the committee, that this proposal warranted consideration under the new naming policy issued September 13, 1999, using the criteria for a significant donor gift.

Proposal for Naming the Center for Musical Arts

Jeff Langley asked the committee to consider a proposal to name the proposed Music Center the Donald and Maureen Green Music Center. A subcommittee with representation from the Campus Planning Committee and the faculty and students associated with the new facility met and evaluated the proposal. The subcommittee considered the functions of the facility, the history and traditions of the facility and its occupants, the relationship of the facility to the campus as a whole and the relationship to the university of the individuals being honored. The Trustee's policy and the campus policy specify that the name of a major facility or property honoring an individual or organization when a donor gift is involved must meet four criteria. The subcommittee has considered all of these criteria and has concluded that the proposal complies with them. It was the recommendation of the subcommittee to approve the proposal. Steve Wilson moved to accept this recommendation, seconded by Bernie Goldstein and approved unanimously by the committee.
