The schematic diagram on this page simplifies the major elements of the campus framework. the framework is the foundation to the entire Master Plan and should never be compromised. It is the basis for each component and element of the plan.
The most influential element of the framework is the central area around the University Center. The campus is separated into two sections, with an "hourglass" effect at 20th Street and 10th Avenue. Developing the campus into one complete site is a priority.
One objective is to widen the campus proper along 20th Street, between 9th and 11th Avenues. The University intends to purchase property in the northwest and southeast directions to reduce the pinched effect. A major pedestrian way will run through this area unifying the two sections.
The pedestrian way (Alumni Walk) joining the campuses will also reduce
the vertical issues associated with the site. Compounding the separation
problem is the fact that the University Center is also located at the highest
point in Greeley. Both the pinnacle of the hill and the pinched area of
the hourglass are located at the center of campus, at the University Center.
• Provide an understandable hierarchy of campus pedestrian circulation (Alumni Walk, pedestrian "arterials", functional linkages, etc.). Use this new pedestrian circulation system as a mechanism to organize spaces within the total environment and between the central and west parts of campus.
• Organize land use through series of architectural clusters organized by greens, quads and open space corridors. Use future buildings to help define and complete these spaces. The schematic diagram below simplifies the major elements of the campus framework. The framework is the foundation to the entire Master Plan and should never be compromised. It is the basis for each component and element of the plan.
