Institutional Master Plan community meeting rescheduled for Feb. 11

The first of three community meetings on Pitt’s proposed Institutional Master Plan, which was cancelled on Jan. 30 because of the bitter cold weather, has been rescheduled to Feb. 11.

The Office of Facilities Management will host the meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at the University Club, Conference Room A.

The Institutional Master Plan — required by the city of Pittsburgh — is a more detailed version of Pitt’s draft campus master plan, which was created after more than a year of input from Pitt faculty, students and staff as well as local community members and partners.

The IMP provides details related to city regulations, including building height and mass, parking, urban design and neighborhood compatibility. An IMP helps provide greater understanding about institutional plans to the community and public. After receiving community input, the University’s draft IMP will be submitted to the city this spring.

In addition to the draft IMP being shared, Facilities Management will share information about the Scaife Hall addition and renovation project, which will provide additional classrooms, labs and library and student spaces. The project will partially renovate the existing structure, as well as include both new construction and the demolition of auditorium space on the corner of Lothrop and Terrace streets.
