Director John Horn recently presented an update on the Master Plan to the Student Services Financial Committee. Both the Badger Herald and Daily Cardinal covered the presentation on September 16, 2014.
While students were away for the summer, Rec Sports made steady progress on the approval of the Master Plan.
The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents approved the Near West Playfield project in August. The selection process for an architect and engineer for this project is currently underway and once solidified, a formal design phase will begin.
Rec Sports presents the SERF project to the UW Board of Regents in December 2014 and has engaged several consultants to prepare a facility analysis report for that presentation. A project architect and engineer will be selected barring approval from the Board of Regents this winter.
Students will continue to be engaged in conversations related to new facilities, and Rec Sports is working with the Associated Students of Madison to form a student committee that will advise the Division and serve as a liaison to campus. A student committee composed of Rec Sports student staff and student members will serve a similar function throughout the design and construction process. Students will be invited to attend several site visits at other universities over the course of the project and will be encouraged to participate in design discussions.
