Campus Master Plan 2010-2020
The University is currently updating its campus master plan for the years 2010-2020. This is a 5-year update as required by Chapter 1013.30, Florida Statues.
The campus master plan applies to university growth and development on the main campus in Gainesville, 13 satellite properties in Alachua County, the Davie/Ft. Lauderdale Research and Education Center, and the Mid-Florida Research and Education Center in Apopka. The plan documents will include an Evaluation and Appraisal Report, Data and Analysis Report, and Plan Elements.The first two reports, which may be combined, provide background data, trends, projections, and implementation benchmarks regarding campus growth and development. The Plan Element contains the policies and maps updated from the currently adopted campus master plan for 2005-2015.
The joint committees of LVL, PHBS, TPAC and ULUFPC are charged with overseeing various aspects of master plan implementation and updates. These committees, along with the Sustainability Committee, will be involved throughout the plan update process. Opportunities for input will be provided through presentations to Student Government, Faculty Senate Policy Councils, and numerous campus and community groups. There will also be at least one informational workshop and two public hearings before the plan is adopted.
The transportation component of the campus master plan update is being coordinated with the 5-year update of the regional 2035 Long-Range Transportation Plan for the Gainesville Urbanized Area Metropolitan Transportation Organization (MTPO). The University and MTPO jointly selected the consultant firm of Renaissance Planning Group to assist with developing and coordinating both plans. Community roadways, transit service and bicycle/pedestrian networks provide access to the University and must be complementary to the University's plans for parking management, transit access, and bike/ped facility connectivity. Many discussions that will take place at MTPO LRTP public meetings will also be relevant to the development of the university's transportation solutions.
