Any day now, the University will be releasing the results of the most recent phase of the Master Plan update process. For the last few months, representatives from Facilities Management have been meeting with stakeholders on and off campus to gather feedback, and those findings will be posted on the University’s Web site.

Every five years, the University System of Maryland requires each campus to revisit its Master Plan. This is different from the TU 2010 Plan. The Master Plan aims to outline long term construction goals for the campus. Major components of TU’s Master Plan is the continued development of the West Village housing complex, the completion of the new College of Liberal Arts complex and the creation of the campus’s “new front door” along Towsontown Boulevard.

With the information that is provided in the report presented in the next week, the decision makers within the University administration will determine any changes, no matter how minor they may be, to the Master Plan. I really don’t expect to see any shocking alterations. West Village and CLA will continue to go up, Smith Hall will still be renovated and a plaza will be opened up along Towsontown Boulevard.

This is still just one step in the grand process. President Caret and his team will present the results of the Master Plan update in the fall to the USM Board of Regents. By then, we’ll have a more clear idea of what campus may look like during the next 10-15 years.
