Zak Oviada, Facilities Planning, presented the Student Union Plaza Concept traffic pattern change intended to accommodate pedestrian safety by changing the interface near the arena. The plan is to close the loop road to all vehicles except for the shuttles and emergency vehicles in the student union area. Bollards will be placed to stop traffic that can be removed for events. Entry and exit to the parking garage will be through the eastern side only. Contact Zak with any concerns.
Question from Kathy Robinson: Will there be no way to circle campus?
Response from Zak: That is correct.
Question from Kathy Robinson: What are bollards?

be implemented over the next ten years.

From Tom Serwatka: An open session should be held to allow the campus community to comment and ask questions.
