Public Meeting Monday on Massive ‘East Campus’ Project

Rethink College Park just noticed this article reporting the University will host an important public meeting about the East Campus Redevelopment Initiative tomorrow, Monday, September 11, at 3:30 p.m. in the Colony Ballroom of the Stamp Student Union. We wrote in August about the project when the university launched a website targeting developers.

University leaders hope to build offices, housing, stores, and a conference center on 38 acres of University land bounded by Paint Branch and Route 1. The facilities currently occupying the land — including the Shuttle-UM bus barn, maintenance shops, and mail facilities — will be relocated elsewhere on campus. University officials are also holding a “Developer Information Session” on Thursday, September 14 at 9:30 a.m. in Ritchie Coliseum. We encourage community members to attend the meeting Monday to learn about this important project and learn how they can contribute input in the process.
