Guidelines for Facilities, Roads and Parking

The Facilities, Traffic and Parking Guidelines were presented to the Council for review and comment. This item was developed by the Facilities Committee and presented to the Cabinet for review. Dr. Leutze stated that he would like to have more faculty involvement in decisions on buildings location. He reported that he would meet with the Faculty Senate Buildings and Grounds committee to discuss the process used to approve the location of campus buildings, parking lots, etc. He will also review the locations recently approved by the Board of Trustees. The Creative Arts Classroom building location is to mesh with other buildings that are planned for this area of campus. The university is developing sector plans to insure that facilities and programmatic functions complement one another and that efficient traffic (pedestrian and vehicular) flow within and between campus areas is maintained.
