The University of Montana will host the first of three public planning meetings about the South Campus Master Plan on Wednesday, Dec. 5. The meeting will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. in Health and Business Building Room HB01 at Missoula College, located at 909 South Ave. W.
UM’s South Campus acreage now includes the UM Golf Course, track and soccer facilities, student housing and bus stops. The master plan would bring a suite of new buildings and other projects to the South Campus, starting with the proposed new building for Missoula College. The master plan, which was approved by the Board of Regents in 2007, was developed to guide the growth of UM for the next five decades.
This week’s meeting will kick off with an open house and information tables from 4 to 6 p.m. Mark Headley of Studio Forma Architects, who designed the proposed Missoula College building, will present from 6 to 6:30 p.m., and UM President Royce Engstrom will offer remarks from 6:30 to 7 p.m.
A question-and-answer session will be held from 7 to 8 p.m.
Two follow-up meetings will be scheduled early next year. For more information, call the UM President’s Office at 406-243-2311.
