More meetings scheduled as NMSU continues development of its master plan

As New Mexico State University continues to develop its master plan, more public meetings are scheduled for March.


ter plan outlines the university's future physical development and land use, including infrastructure, transportation and buildings.

"Input from New Mexico State University faculty, staff and students as well as the university's neighbors and friends is of paramount importance to the success of a master plan," said Michael Rickenbaker, university architect and director of NMSU's facilities planning and construction department.

Master plan consultants will meet with the NMSU Faculty Senate, Advisory Council for Administrative Policy and Campus Planning from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. They will meet with the Associated Students of NMSU and any other interested students from 4:30 to 6 p.m. the same day.

On Thursday, March 16, from 7 to 9 p.m., the consultants will meet with the public.

All three meetings will take place in the TV lounge area across from the information desk on the second floor of Corbett Center.

In addition to these meetings, the consultants also will meet with the master plan design team, NMSU President Michael Martin and officials from Parking and Transportation, Arrowhead Research Park, city of Las Cruces, Dona Ana County, Metropolitan Planning Organization, University Avenue Corridor, Arts Complex Building Committee, Athletics Department, Housing Department and Intramurals.

Consultants for the project are Studio D Architects in Las Cruces and their partner firm, Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas and Co., who have offices in Tampa, Fla., and Norfolk, Va. Also, consultants in infrastructural engineering, transportation and landscape architecture will be involved.
