North Campus Corridor open house set for March 25
As we continue the development of the K-State North Campus Corridor Master Plan, a campus open house will be from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, in Room 207 of the K-State Student Union with representatives from Perkins+Will and other members of our North Campus Corridor planning team. The open house will offer the K-State Community the opportunity to give input and provide feedback on preliminary recommendations and alternatives for this area. Topics to be covered include:
• North Campus Corridor Development Plan — Land Use, Open Space, Infrastructure — both underground utilities and "green infrastructure."
• Transportation Plan — Multimodal access and circulation, pedestrian connectivity, transit and parking recommendations.
• Kimball Road improvements — Proposed street section, new access points, streetscape improvements.
• Public realm and open space improvements — Gateways and portals, signage, wayfinding and landscape guidelines.
The goal of the North Campus Corridor Master Plan is to define and strengthen the area's sense of purpose and sense of place that stems from the physical environment offered by Kansas State University. Design concepts will integrate academic and research facilities, infrastructure and open space to create a sustainable living, learning and knowledge-creation community for K-State.
Please drop by during this time to visit with our consultants, ask questions and provide your ideas and feedback. We look forward to seeing you at the campus open house.
