Issue 1: Ensure that the Music Center is served by pedestrian and bicycle connections to the rest of the campus.

Proposed design responses:

  • Pedestrian/bicycle bridges lead from parking lot adjacent to the Music Center (north of Copeland Creek) to central campus (south of Copeland Creek).
  • Main bridge across Copeland Creek will have sidewalk to provide bicycle and pedestrian access.
  • Bike paths follow Copeland Creek from Music Center to student housing.
  • Location of Music Center does not break continuity of proposed bicycle circulation route along Copeland Creek.

Issue 2: Establish an appropriate relationship between the "agricultural zones" adjacent to the Music Center and the rest of campus.

Proposed design responses:

  • Access to the agricultural zones and operations within them will not intrude on campus circulation.
