Master Planning Committee Recommendations

At its regularly scheduled meeting on October 2, 2003, the UAF Master Planning Committee (MPC) unanimously approved the following recommendation regarding creation of a new MPC standing subcommittee on campus landscape and outdoor art. We request your review and approval of this recommendation.

MPC recommendation 03-09: The UAF Master Planning Committee (MPC) recommends that the Chancellor create a new MPC standing subcommittee on campus landscape and outdoor artwork. The subcommittee will assume responsibilities previously undertaken by the existing ad hoc landscape committee, including making recommendations about the use of Ruth Hewitt endowment landscaping funds. The subcommittee will monitor the implementation of the campus landscaping plan and promote landscaping activities throughout campus.

The rationale for creating this standing subcommittee is to ensure that recommendations pertaining to campus landscape and outdoor artwork are fully consistent with the UAF campus master plan.

The MPC recommends that members of the new standing subcommittee be selected from nominations by Cooperative Extension Service, Facilities Services, Georgeson Botanical Garden/SNRAS, Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Native Education, Master Planning Committee, College of Fellows, and one student.

On June 15, 2004, former Chancellor Marshall Lind approved the UAF Campus Landscape Plan, after receiving the following recommendation from the MPC on April 4, 2004:

The Master Planning Committee moves to adopt the UAF Campus Landscape Plan as presented by the ad hoc Campus Landscape and Outdoor Artwork Subcommittee and to forward it to the Chancellor for review and approval (Motion - Crave, second - Seifert; vote 8 yeas, 0 nay, 0 abstentions).

On October 13, 2003, Chancellor Lind approved the following MPC recommendation creating a new MPC Subcommittee on Campus Landscape and Outdoor Artwork. This new subcommittee will continue work of the previous ad hoc landscaping committee, including making recommendations about use of the Ruth Hewitt landscaping endowment fund. One of its foremost tasks will be completion of the draft campus landscape plan, expected to be finalized in fall 2003.

The new subcommittee will be appointed by the Chancellor and made up of members nominated by the following: Cooperative Extension Service, Facilities Services, Georgeson Botanical Garden/School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences (SNRAS), Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Native Education, UAF Master Planning Committee, College of Fellows, and one student.
