Do you have a favorite building, or a pathway on campus? Do you cringe when you see a building with its loading dock in the place where the front door should be?

If so, you are the perfect person to help UCR create a vision for how the campus will meet the needs of the future.

On Tuesday, Feb. 24, UCR will host two workshops about future campus physical planning.  The events, “UCR Future Campus Visioning Workshops,” are being held both on- and off-campus, and are open to students, faculty, staff and members of the local community.

“These workshops give everyone a chance to make your voice heard on a wide variety of issues – including architecture, design, open spaces, sustainability, traffic, transportation, parking, signage, amenities, landscaping, safety, way-finding, walkability, and much more,” said Maria Anguiano, vice chancellor for planning and budget.

“Each member of the campus community has a unique experience of the buildings and spaces that we use and through which we move every day, said Rob Gayle, campus architect.  “Sharing that experience — what works and what doesn’t —  will help create the places and spaces that will shape UCR’s future.”

The workshops are part of an ongoing Physical Master Plan Study to guide responsible and sustainable campus development to the year 2025 and beyond.

The study will be used to assist campus leadership in meeting the key goals of the university’s strategic plan, UCR 2020: The Path to Preeminence. While the study is underway over the course of 2015, UCR will continue to advance priority projects, in accordance with the UCR long-range development plan of 2005, with amendments, as necessary, and subject to any required public review.

UCR is committed to soliciting input from the public as well as local and state government entities and private concerns during the process.  For more information, please visit: http://planning.ucr.edu.
