Community workshops were held in September 2004 and May 2005.
The next community meeting is anticipated for Fall 2005.
On March 22, 2006, the
campus master plan update was presented to the universitys
Board of Trustees. The update identified the few remaining
developable sites on the main campus and reaffirmed the responsible
capacity of the land. The development of Carolina North remains
an important way to meet expansion needs in the future and
fulfill the mission of the university.
The update is true to the history of the campus and the principles
of the original 2001 plan. Highlights of the updated plan
Maintaining and enhancing
the fundamental beauty and character of the main campus,
especially Polk and McCorkle Places;
Transforming the surface parking in the Bell Tower into
a new open space framed by new buildings for academic
and research programs;
Providing space for the Arts Common;
Removing and replacing Davie Hall; and
Expanding South Campus by exporting the qualities of
Polk and McCorkle and making it a vital hub of student
This update integrates the lessons we have learned to date,
especially with regard to infrastructure (both utilities and
parking) and natural resources. It is an improvement upon
an already excellent plan that has served the University well.
Key elements of the plan are starting to come to life, especially
on South Campus.
