WCU campus master planners to seek community input

Representatives from the firms assisting Western Carolina University in drafting a comprehensive master plan that will guide campus development and improvements in the years ahead will return from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.

The consultants are expected to complete a preliminary report and plan by early September, followed by a series of campus and community presentations for reaction in October and November. After revisions based on that feedback, the final master plan should be ready for consideration by the WCU Board of Trustees at its meeting in December. Refreshments will be served, and community members can arrive at any point during the event to offer feedback.
