Event Notice: Campus and Community Open House #1

Campus and Community Open House #1
May 23, 2013
Stauffer Library Loggia
101 Union Street
Drop in between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Main Campus is nearing capacity.
The Queen’s campus experience needs to be protected and enhanced while accommodating facility upgrades.
The future of campus must recognize opportunities for community building.
Queen’s must nurture a symbiotic relationship with the City of Kingston.

…These are some of the key directions driving the Queen’s Campus Master Plan update. Come out to the Stauffer Library Loggia on May 23 between 2p.m. and 6 p.m. to provide your comments on where the study is heading!

Queen’s University is updating its Campus Master Plan (CMP). When complete, the CMP will establish an engaging and attainable vision and framework that will guide how the university physically changes over the next 10 to 15 years. The university has retained a multi-faceted consultant team to prepare the CMP, led by Urban Strategies and supported by a number of other consultants specializing in different aspects of campus development.

The CMP consultant team has recently completed its analysis and initial consultation components of the study and is ready to hear your feedback on key directions. Come to learn about the key findings to date, meet with the project consultants, and comment on the preliminary directions.

    When are the other open houses? Almost no students are in Kingston right now – how is this an effective means of soliciting student opinion?

      Hi Olivia,

      This is one of three open houses we are hosting as part of the CMP study process, reporting on draft directions for the CMP. Unfortunately — due to the project timeline — it had to be hosted after most students have departed for the summer. In addition to the Information Exchange we hosted in March, we will be hosting a second open house in the fall (tentatively scheduled October 3rd) which will share a more advanced document.

      All of the materials for tomorrow’s event will be posted on the Queen’s website (goo.gl/StO7w) and we invite everyone to view them and comment back here on the discussion threads. A major part of creating this blog was to ensure that students can stay engaged throughout the study process — even when they’re not on campus!

      If you want to chat any more about this, my contact info can be found in the “About” info on this blog!

      – Anthony
