Campus Master Plan, School Site, and the Medway Valley

Western University Campus  Master Plan

The University is updating its Campus Master Plan. You can find information and a copy of the Plan at:

http://www.uwo.ca/ipb/publicaccountability/campus_master_plan.html

There are two meetings you can attend to learn more from University staff.

  • A London Community Meeting will be will be held on February 23 from 7:00-9:00pm at the Public Health and Family Medicine Building, Rm 1150, where the Plan will be presented and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. You are asked to e-mail masterplan@uwo.ca with RSVP in the subject line to ensure there is adequate space available.
  • A Campus Community Meeting will be held on February 25 from 12:00-1:30pm in the UCC’s McKellar Room, where the Plan will be presented and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. You are asked to e-mail masterplan@uwo.ca with RSVP in the subject line to ensure there is adequate space available.

On page 70 of the Master Plan, there is reference to the FRAM lands off Ramsay Road besides Brescia and the Precious Blood. This is one of the University’s “secondary development areas.” It is not anticipated for growth in the immediate future. Western considers these lands mostly beyond reasonable pedestrian distance for core educational/instructional use, but see them as having potential for other academic and support buildings.

The University is looking for feedback on its Plan. You may provide comments in writing to masterplan@uwo.ca by February 28, 2015

Sherwood Forest School Site

City staff will be updating City Council on the timeline for the redevelopment of the Sherwood Forest School site into a public park and new housing. Click here for the report.

It will be presented around noon at City Hall at a meeting of the Council’s Corporate Services Committee on February 17th.

Come learn more about the Medway Valley Heritage Forest

Professor Greg Thorn from Western University (and the neighbourhood) will be sharing his knowledge of the Valley at Nature in The City on Tuesday, February 17th at 7 pm at the Wolf Performance Hall at the Central Library on Dundas Street. He will introduce the amazing features and interesting residents of this Environmentally Significant Area we live near.

Phil McLeod, the former editor of the Free Press has done a wonderful video about the Medway.
