Revisions to the UNH Campus Master Plan

The latest revisions to the UNH proposed campus master plan are now available online. The NH Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food reports: “…the equine teaching and farm facilities will remain at the current location. However, the MacFarlane greenhouses and the Thompson School’s Putnam Hall are still designated for public-private research park development.” Via New Hampshire Farms Network:

Speaking of UNH, those who have submitted comments on the proposed campus master plan updates recently received an emailed response ** from University Architect and Director of Campus Planning Doug Bencks. The letter is available on the campus plan webpage www.unh.edu/cmp click on ‘Status Report-June 2012.’ The latest revisions to the proposed plan are also available at the site. UNH officials have declared that the equine teaching and farm facilities will remain at the current location. However, the MacFarlane greenhouses and the Thompson School’s Putnam Hall are still designated for public-private research park development. Comments are still welcome in this continuing planning process.

Bencks’s letter states, “The response of the community to the master plan itself has made it clear once again that both the agricultural mission of the University, and the environmental ethic of the community, are very much seen as core values of the institution.”
