In order for the Master Plan to move forward, UW-Madison students must vote to support the project in the spring student government elections (March 3-5). The Master Plan will be included as a referendum to the ASM ballot, which will be emailed to the student body in March.
More details about how to vote for the Master Plan, as well as the official ballot language and specific details about where students and members will be able to work out while facilities are under construction, will be released prior to voting.
Students will vote to support new facilities at the SERF, Natatorium, Near East, and Near West Fields. Students will not be voting for renovations and improvements at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium and University Bay Fields. Rec Sports is seeking private gifts to fund these projects but currently has no plans for construction.
Students are encouraged to educate themselves about the plan details prior to casting their votes.
