Comments on Green Space

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/planning/masterplan/campuswide/feedback/university/greenspace.html
  1. The department recognizes the limitations of current university space for future development. However, to cite one example, the concept of wrapping university housing around the campus bell tower seems self-defeating on several grounds: campus appearance, availability of green space for instructional and recreational purposes, identification of a campus landmark, and proximity of housing to other campus buildings. President Davenports suggestion that the university consider purchasing (or re-purchasing) land in surrounding areas should be given strong consideration, depending on availability of funding.
  2. Notes that feedback indicates that people want lots of green space but also want to park right by their door.
  3. Request to preserve campus green space.
  4. I like the pedestrian malls.
