Next master plan open houses are Nov. 26-27

Representatives from Sasaki Associates will present refined UNL Campus and Landscape Master Plan concepts during open house sessions on Nov. 26 and 27.

Both sessions are 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The Nov. 26 open house is in the Nebraska Union, while the Nov. 27 session is in the East Union.

During the open houses, representatives from Sasaki will present one refined idea for the new UNL Campus and Landscape Master Plan. The presentations will also include smaller options that could fit into the refined plans.

Sasaki Associates, based in Watertown, Mass., is a planning/design firm leading UNL's update of the campus master physical plan and landscape master plan project. The firm has been gathering information about UNL since the summer.

Three conceptual frameworks for City and East campuses were presented during open house sessions Oct. 24 and 25. Information from those sessions, meetings with campus administrators and feedback submitted online by faculty, staff, students and the public was used to craft the refined plans that will be presented Nov. 26-27.

Sasaki will use information from the November open houses and other meetings to further refine the master plan concepts. Final campus reviews of the plans will be offered in January. The final UNL Campus and Landscape Master Plan will be presented to the University of Nebraska Board of Regents in late spring or early summer.
