Location change for North Campus Corridor open house today
Please note the location has changed for the North Campus Corridor open house from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25. The meeting will be in the K-State Student Union Cottonwood Room.
Representatives from Perkins+Will and other members of our North Campus Corridor planning team will be available. 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.
