URI to unveil draft master plan
at public forum, Jan. 27

KINGSTON, R.I. -- January 19, 2000 -- The University of Rhode Island invites the general public to attend a presentation of the URI Master Plan for the Kingston and Narragansett Bay campuses. The public forum will be held on Thursday, January 27, at 7 p.m. in room 113 in the White Hall Auditorium on the Kingston Campus.

The award-winning architectural and planning firm, Goody, Clancy & Associates of Boston, Mass., which developed the comprehensive master plan, will present their final draft recommendations to the university community and the public.

The presentation wraps-up a process that was initiated by the discussion and ideas of members of the university community who attended the annual "Common Agenda" strategic planning meetings in the summers of 1996 and 1997. Goody, Clancy & Associates was hired in December 1998 to help ensure the continued, measured growth of the university's campuses.

Since the process began a team of master planners and university representatives have focused on five broad areas: land use, landscape, transportation, facilities, and utilities. The plan addresses the University's resources and multiple capital projects, and provides a decision-making framework to guide the image, physical growth, facilities planning, and environmental management of URI's Kingston and Narragansett Bay Campuses.

The master plan provides an objective snapshot of campus facilities in 1999 and maps out foreseeable projects for the next 10-15 years. The changes recommended include improvements in the campus landscape, transportation and parking systems, and buildings and land uses.

For more information about the public forum, contact the URI Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Research at 874-4461.
