Guests:  Pat Cassidy, Nancy Nussbaum, Clayton Medford, University Star reporter

 

Meeting called to order at 4:06 p.m.

 

Masterplan Presentation

Nancy Nussbaum presented the latest incarnation of the Masterplan.  Most of the projects she discussed had been accepted by the various committees on campus.  These recommendations will now go before the Regential Planning Committee on May 3rd.   Following that meeting, and assuming approval, the plan will go to the Regents for their  May meeting.

 

The specifics of the plan are available at http://www.fss.txstate.edu/cmp/

 

Summary of presentation: 

The timeline for all of the proposed projects is vague, pending funding and legislative approval.

 

General guidelines:

            Add more green space [shift “from gray to green.”]

                        Switch from surface parking to parking garages

                                    Enough garages would be located throughout campus that most

                                    buildings would be within a five minute walk from one or another

                                    of the garages.   

                        Create arboretum across campus

            Link open spaces across campus

            Create bike/pedestrian path

 

[note to senators:  do you want more specifics here?  I have more notes but thought the minutes were getting too bogged down in detail.]

 

At the end of the presentation, Senator Fleming asked if the Round Rock facility would be given higher priority than changes to the San Marcos campus.  Nussbaum said that the two were separate projects.

 

Following the break, the senate heard presentations from the Developmental Leave applicants.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Mary Brennan
