U of Mn Twin Cities Master Plan Meetings

The University has been updating its master plan for the Twin Cities Campus for several months. Back in 2007 and 2008 they hosted a series of community meetings and many people have been wondering about results. Now the U appears ready to share plans and take input. People close to the campus are especially concerned about future plans to grow or expand the campus and seeing the U identify a border.

I just received the following information:

"...There will be four open forums to preview the master plan recommendations in the first week of February:
• Monday, February 2, 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., Cowles Auditorium, HHH Center, 301 - 19th Avenue, on the West Bank.
• Tuesday, February 3, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., Mississippi Room, Coffman Union, 300 Washington Avenue SE, East Bank.
• Wednesday, February 4, 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., Room 33 McNeal Hall, 1985 Buford Avenue, Saint Paul (Falcon Heights) campus
• Thursday, February 5, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., Van Cleve Park, 901 - 15th Avenue SE, Minneapolis.

Draft Campus Master Plan and the invitation to comment will be published and available on the Campus Master Plan website at

A copy of the draft Campus Master Plan will also be available at Wilson Library (on the West Bank), and at the Minneapolis/Hennepin County SE Library on 4th Street and 13th Avenue SE, Minneapolis.

February 6 through 20: Public comments are invited on the Campus Master Plan.

February 12: Presentation of the Campus Master Plan update to the Board of Regents' Facilities Committee, for review, 1:15 p.m., 6th Floor, MacNamara Alumni Center. Regentsʼ meetings may also be viewed live at

March 12/13: presentation of Plan and comments to full Board of Regents, for action."

I hope people will be able and willing to attend some of these meetings and comment on the plans. I would be very interested in reading and hearing peoples thoughts and reactions.
