STRENGTHEN PRIDE AND INVOLVEMENT
Initiative: Update and monitor implementation of the Campus Master Plan.
Achievements of the past year:
During this past year we obtained an update of the campus Master Plan Map to reflect current campus conditions. This map will be used as a jumping off point to begin the process of developing a new Master Plan.
Goals for the next year:
Develop a campus master plan committee composed of a cross section of the university to steer and guide the initiative. Plan and develop a services contract to have a professional University planning firm to prepare a new Master Plan.
Constraints to full implementation of this initiative:
This is an unfunded requirement that will cost. Funding for this will cost around $225,000 to develop a full master plan to incorporate all the many elements of MSU Campus. Additionally, there will be a commitment of University resources and time for the committee participation.
Proposed modification of this initiative:
Overall assessment of the status of the initiative or other comments:
IHL requires a master facilities plan update every 5 years. Our current Master Plan was prepared in 2003. Our campus environment has dramatically changed since the development of our 2003 master plan. Preparation and implementation of a new master plan during FY 09 will enable us to reflect on the changes of late, and develop the master plan for the future considering all that has occurred and those that are currently in the planning stages.
