Riverpoint Campus Master Plan Workshop Set for Feb. 24
SPOKANE, Wash. -- Washington State University Spokane will hold a community/campus workshop 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, as part of the process to update the Riverpoint campus master plan.
The workshop will be held in the SIRTI Building at 665 N. Riverpoint Blvd., Room 201C on the entry level.
Planning alternatives were developed following a public forum held in January. The workshop will review the options, discuss their merits and explore citizen insights concerning ongoing future development of the Riverpoint campus.
"Citizen participation in the first workshop was invaluable in identifying common values and priorities that will shape the type of campus Riverpoint becomes," said Campus Dean Bill Gray.
Several key themes emerged from the earlier discussion, including consideration of the campus as a continuation of the downtown core, and developing it in a way that enhances the downtown experience and creates a "university district" feeling. Another idea is to maintain public access to the river and address concerns for pedestrian safety arising from the presence of a state highway (Trent Avenue) that bisects the campus.
