Comprehensive Master Plan Input Sought

Did you miss the opportunity to attend this fall’s focus groups and community forums on the University’s comprehensive master plan?

It’s not too late to contribute, and the opportunity is available online.

Work is continuing on the University’s comprehensive master plan for the Pittsburgh campus — the first such in-depth and long-term study in 50 years. Led by campus planning consultants Ayers Saint Gross (ASG), the comprehensive master plan aims to map a course for the campus over the next three decades. The final plan is scheduled to be rolled out next summer.

A trio of surveys — focused separately to solicit comments regarding Pittsburgh campus buildings, landscape and transportation — are posted in map form under the Master Plan 2018 tab at

To comment on the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in a specific area, simply click on the highlighted building, landscape feature, roadway or parking lot on the map and add your thoughts in the pop-up box. There’s also an “other comments” box in each survey where more general input or comments that don’t align with the maps can be shared with the survey team.

In addition to the surveys, summaries of input offered by attendees at multiple community forums and focus group sessions held in August and September are posted for reference.

Comments are being solicited through the spring, said Owen Cooks, Facilities Management’s assistant vice chancellor for planning, design and construction.
