On Sunday, I reported about the University of Houston System’s Board of Regents and its reversal of opinions regarding a new campus here.
You can read that story here.
To get a better sense of the regents’ plan, I contacted Richard Bonnin, director of media relations for the University of Houston System. He provided the link below to an online copy of the preliminary plan, as well as the text detailing the system’s masterplan outline.
While Erica Rodriguez is working on a follow-up story to this, I post the plan here so you can get an early look.
“The plan ... is preliminary – it’s in draft form,” Bonnin said. “Remaining details are part of the ongoing negotiations and are not part of the public record at this time.”
Provost John Antel adds: “Only the enrollment projections are done so far. We will have a draft available before the end of the year.”
View the plan online here. Bonnin said the UHV information begins on Page 19.
That plan, plus the masterplan outline pasted below, is the information the system provides to Rep. Geanie Morrison, whose job is it to then spur state legislative support -- if locals and her office agree with the plan.
Based on this additional information, are you in favor of or against UHV building a new campus for $75 million?
