Faculty, staff, student input sought on Campus Master Plan preferred alternative

RELEASED: Sept. 23, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — Representatives from JJR and River Architects will present the preferred alternative of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Campus Master Plan on Sept. 28. Input from faculty, staff and students is needed at this important point in the project.

All members of the campus community are encouraged to participate in one of the Campus Master Plan discussions and to provide comments to JJR and River Architects representatives.

Concepts to be discussed will include potential construction sites for new buildings; expansion of existing buildings; vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic flow; parking; and preservation, alteration or expansion of campus green space.

There will be three formal and informal opportunities for students, faculty and staff to view the alternatives and provide feedback:

  • 11:30-12:15 p.m., east lobby, Davies Center: Student Input Open House. Drop in to review and/or comment on the preferred alternative.
  • 1-2:30 p.m., Hibbard Penthouse, Hibbard Hall: Campus Master Plan discussion open to faculty, staff and students.
  • 3 p.m., Davies Theatre, Davies Center: Master Plan presentation to the University Senate followed by questions and comments.

The Campus Master Plan preferred alternative was developed based on a comprehensive space needs analysis (including general access classroom and computer laboratory space analysis undertaken as part of the education building project), housing market study, and parking and transportation analysis. Campus input was solicited through questionnaires, focus group discussions, conference calls and campus presentations last fall and spring.

The Campus Master Plan will provide a framework for the physical development of the UW-Eau Claire campus for the next 20 years, including recommendations for land use, space use, image and identity, access and circulation, parking, open space, athletic and recreation facilities, housing, utilities, stewardship and sustainability, potential acquisition, and architectural and site design guidelines. It will support the strategic and academic visions and missions of the university.

Feedback on the preferred alternative will be used to develop a final Campus Master Plan that will be presented to campus in January 2011.

Between Oct. 4 and Oct. 22, faculty, staff and students also may review and comment on the preferred alternative online.
