U of G holds Town Hall meeting to discuss Campus Master Plan
All members of the University of Guelph community are invited to attend a first town hall meeting on the campus master plan review Oct. 17 from 12 to 1 p.m. in Peter Clark Hall.
Representatives from Du Toit Allsopp Hillier, the consultants engaged by the University to oversee the review, will introduce the campus master plan process and describe their work to date. From 1 to 4:30 p.m., focus groups will discuss and propose design ideas about the campus. The groups, representing a broad section of the U of G community, have been working on the master plan review since the beginning of the year.
The University is currently updating its campus master plan as part of its long-range planning for facilities, physical development and the landscape of the campus; it is the first major campus planning exercise since 1987, and an integral part of planning for the “double cohort.”
“Once completed and adopted by the Board of Governors, the revised campus master plan will guide physical development at the University and shape the composition of future buildings and landscapes,” said Nancy Sullivan, vice-president (finance and administration).
“This is why participation by our faculty, staff and students is an integral part of the process. We urge everyone to attend this important session, and to provide us with their thoughts about the future of the University of Guelph campus.”
People who wish to take part in the focus group discussions may contact Prof. Jim Taylor of Landscape Architecture and campus master plan review co-ordinator, at Ext. 4930 or by e-mail at :email@example.com
