University and local communities invited to join in ‘Plans in Progress’
Princeton NJ — Plans in Progress,” an opportunity for members of the University and local communities to be a part of the dialogue on the University’s 10-year campus plan, is scheduled for 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, in the Chancellor Green Rotunda.
The open forum comes midway through a two-year effort to develop a comprehensive plan for the campus through 2017. Those attending will be able to view a model and visual displays set up around the rotunda on all aspects of the campus plan, ranging from landscaping and sustainability to parking and transportation. Stations also will focus on the various campus “neighborhoods” that are part of the plan, such as Alexander Street/University Place, which the University is considering as a location for various facilities to meet the goals of its new creative and performing arts initiative.
Members of the planning team will be available at each display station for discussion and to answer questions. Refreshments will be served.
“A campus planning effort is significantly enriched through the ideas and suggestions offered by community members,” said Executive Vice President Mark Burstein. “The open forum on Nov. 8 will provide an opportunity for the planning team to learn more as well as provide more detailed information about the planning effort.”
The planning effort is being led by the award-winning firm of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners LLP. Working with a team of seven other planning and design firms specializing in transportation engineering, landscape design, storm water management, parking and wayfinding, BBB is taking a fresh look at the 400-acre campus, providing a framework for campus growth that seeks to strengthen and reintroduce a landscape network throughout the campus while improving traffic, parking and pedestrian circulation between the campus and surrounding neighborhoods.
The process is governed by the five guiding principles established by University trustees in 2003: maintain a pedestrian-oriented campus; preserve the park-like character of the campus; maintain campus “neighborhoods” while promoting a sense of community; develop in an environmentally responsible manner; and sustain strong community relations.
More information about the Princeton Campus Plan will soon be available on a Web site, which also will have a mechanism for members of the community to provide feedback.
