Long Range Development Plan Workshop Thursday
October 23, 2009 — The final opportunities to comment on the University of Wyoming Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) recommendations will be offered during workshops scheduled Thursday, Oct. 29.
The campus workshop will be at 3:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union West Yellowstone Ballroom, Room 220. The Laramie community workshop will be at 7 p.m. at the Laramie Recreation Center conference room, 920 Boulder Drive. Both workshops are open to anyone on campus and within the Laramie community.
MIG, the university planning consultant, will present and provide an open forum for discussion of the draft plan. These workshops will be the final opportunity to discuss the University LRDP in a public forum. Written comments will be received at the workshops or at the University Facilities Planning Office in Merica Hall until Nov. 13.
LRDP information, including the technical memos, maps and graphics detailing the plan is posted to the University Facilities Planning Web site at: www.uwyo.edu/facilitiesplanning/lrdp. Comments can be sent to the Facilities Planning office through the e-mail address indicated on the Web site.
Roger Baalman, director of Facilities Planning, says the recommendations will include the proposed campus districts (land uses), proposed campus development and parking on campus, proposed perimeter and internal street and lane development, opportunities for transit development, traffic calming and restrictions of vehicular traffic through the campus, sustainability, infrastructure development, signs and other planning issues.
The workshops culminate a lengthy planning process that examined existing land uses, capacity for development, space utilization, student housing, vehicle traffic, pedestrian lanes, bicycle lanes and neighborhoods, Baalman says.
