Third Draft Institutional Master Plan Community Meeting to Discuss Transportation

The Office of Facilities Management will host its third community meeting to discuss the University’s proposed Institutional Master Plan (IMP) on Tuesday, April 16, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the lower lounge of the William Pitt Union. The meeting will focus on transportation, including parking and pedestrian and commuting traffic.

The IMP is a more detailed version of Pitt’s 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. Read more about the differences between the Pittsburgh Campus Master Plan and the IMP.

Using the feedback received at meetings last fall, Facilities Management is now developing it into an IMP — a formal document required by the City of Pittsburgh that 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 at meetings like the one on April 16, the University will submit the IMP will be submitted to the City.
