Planning History Page

bullet The graphical planning study below is composed of colored adhesive film overlaid on a plan of West Campus buildings, roads, and topographic lines. While not dated, the plan depicts ideas first drawn in the early 1960s and then later included in the 1970 Campus Development Plan - the extension of Howard Street north to West Main Street, with West Michigan Avenue terminating in cul-de-sacs on the east and west sides of the campus building core, and the building footprints for Rood and Everett Halls.
