The current Master Plan Revision
Why another Master Plan revision?
The Master Plan Revision currently under consideration was motivated
by the identification of four substantial new facilities projects proposed
for the campus.
- The Music Center -- a music performance
and teaching facility
- The University Center -- a center for
student activities, retail, recreation, and summer conferences
- New classroom/laboratory/office buildings
-- three new buildings to house classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices,
and related support facilities, to accommodate ultimate planned campus
enrollment of 10,000 full time equivalent students.
- Additional Student Housing -- to meet the
projected need for new on-campus housing in addition to that provided
by "Sauvignon Village," which is currently under construction.
In addition to these potential changes to the land use plan component
of the Master Plan, associated revisions to the Pedestrian
Circulation and Parking &Vehicular Circulation
components are under consideration as well. The system of open
spaces on campus, both natural and built, would also be affected by
the proposed Master Plan Revision.
It is the intent of this Master Plan Revision process that the various
components be considered not in isolation, but with attention to how each
fits with the campus as a whole, including three facilities that are currently
or will soon be under construction: the Jean and Charles Shultz Information
Center, Sauvignon Village (student housing currently under construction),
and the Environmental Technology Center. By looking at the components
of the Master Plan Revision proposal together, and as part of the larger
campus context, we are better able to address goals of the University.
Each of the main components of the Master Plan Revision proposal is discussed
at its own location on the website, along with an identification of issues
related to that component. In addition, the website offers an opportunity
for your on-line input into the Master Plan Revision planning process.
