Community input sought for UT facilities master planning

The University of Toledo is seeking input from the Toledo community as it undergoes its first comprehensive facilities master planning process since the 2006 merger with the Medical University of Ohio.

As part of the process, SmithGroupJJR — the consultants preparing the master plan — will host open forums this week to provide information and discuss opinions and ideas for the project with UT constituents and members of the local community.

Open forums for Toledo community members will be:
•  Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Driscoll Alumni Center Auditorium.
•  Thursday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Collier Building Room 1200.

Those community forums will be preceded by forums for UT students, faculty and staff 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. Wednesday in the Driscoll Alumni Center and 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. Thursday in Collier Building.

The meetings will offer the opportunity for the community to meet the consultant team, learn about previous master planning efforts, understand the master planning process and schedule, and discuss any concerns or ideas about the campus.

In addition to the public forums, SmithGroupJJR will conduct informal interviews with students, as well as focused meetings with students, faculty, staff, senior administrators, city of Toledo staff and community members throughout the week. Students also can expect to receive a Student Life survey requesting feedback on campus housing and recreation. Consultants from Paulien & Associates space analysis firm also will perform on-site assessments of the campuses’ instructional spaces.
