After two open workshops with the campus community, the focus of the Campus Master Plan process shifts to specific campus and student groups.
Members of the Transportation Advisory Committee, Associated Students Inc., university housing, Bronco athletics, campus health services, and student groups will meet with master plan consulting firm Ayers Saint Gross in individual sessions on Tuesday, Jan. 23.
The meetings will allow the consulting firm to address observations about Cal Poly Pomona, collect specific data from the groups, and assess the priorities and needs of these campus stakeholders. The next Campus Master Plan aims to establish priorities and envision the physical landscape of the university in the coming decades.
During the two-day visit, Ayers Saint Gross will meet with President Soraya M. Coley and the presidential Cabinet on Jan. 22 to give an update on the process, including observations and analysis of the feedback collected up to this point.
A session with the Master Plan Advisory Committee also is scheduled on Jan. 22 and will include an examination of the university’s use of land, pedestrian and transit pathways, sustainability, and classroom and office space utilization. The aim will be to establish a baseline and identify constraints that impact planning and development. Principles to support the goals of the Strategic Plan also may be addressed.
At a planned upcoming workshop in February, Ayers Saint Gross has scheduled discussions on classroom and office space utilization, hubs on campus that can be identified for more detailed analysis and the framework for the next Campus Master Plan. Data collection has been the focus of the master planning process thus far.
Previously, Ayers Saint Gross held open workshops to collect feedback from members of the campus community and to assess their viewpoints on priorities for the university. Future sessions may also involve master plan presentations for officials from the city of Pomona and community groups.
A draft of the master plan is expected to be completed in fall 2018 for consideration by university leadership. When the next master plan is adopted, Facilities Planning & Management will carry out the objectives that involve the campus infrastructure. The current Campus Master Plan was adopted in 2000.
