Be a part of the
Master Plan update

How could NAU improve campus parking? Where should the university plan for more green space on campus? What's the future for on-campus transit?

If you have an opinion on NAU's physical future, now is your chance to share it.

NAU Capital Assets is hosting a series of forums on campus to share NAU's Master Plan and to listen to what students, faculty, staff and the public have to say about it.

"We are updating our 2005 long-range vision for NAU and are developing a myriad of recommendations for further actions," said David Hook, a project manager for NAU's planning and development. "As we point to the future, we are looking for input to make sure we are heading in the right direction."

Hook said each forum will include poster displays, a presentation, a question-and-answer session and a discussion about the Master Plan update that will be incorporated on campus "gradually, starting now and continuing for the next 20 years."

The proposed updated plan includes development issues, concepts and recommendations and focuses on integrating the planning of traffic safety and congestion, parking, land use and on-campus transit. Immediate steps within the plan include traffic and parking improvements.

"We are seeking feedback about the work of the Master Plan steering committee to date," Hook said.

Overall, the Master Plan aims to make NAU a greener place. It promotes green space, sustainability and a more pedestrian and bike-friendly campus that requires less driving.
