The University of Colorado Boulder is hosting a Campus Master Plan open house on Wednesday, March 16, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Flatirons Room at the Center for Community. The open house launches the 30-day public comment period and members of the campus and community are invited to come at any time to talk with campus planners about the draft plan.
The Campus Master Plan, a guiding document required by the Colorado Commission of Higher Education, outlines campus development over the next decade. The university began the planning process over a year ago with eight task force groups consisting of members from the campus and the community. Each task force provided input on larger focus areas and subjects. After receiving final reports from each task force, the university hired consultants for technical areas, compiled information, and wrote the draft plan.
“The Campus Master Plan represents a convergence of key communities on campus and within the city of Boulder,” said CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano. “We are putting forth a bold vision — one that makes maximum use of our existing resources, promotes sustainability and innovation, and that will accommodate new generations of students. Together, moving the plan forward, we are laying the groundwork for a bold new century for CU-Boulder.”
Following the 30-day comment period, planners will finalize the document and submit it for approval to campus planning and design boards, the Board of Regents and ultimately the CCHE. The approved Campus Master Plan will guide CU-Boulder campus development until 2020.
The Center for Community is located on the CU-Boulder campus on Regent Drive, just east of Broadway, and the Flatirons Room is located on the third floor. Pay visitor parking is located just west of the building. After 5 p.m. the parking lot across the street is free.
