MacEwan sets out to improve green space, buildings, transit in new master plan

January 3, 2019

MacEwan University has announced that it plans to dramatically increase campus green space, reduce reliance on vehicles, and make the university more accessible over the next 25 years. According to the Edmonton Journal, the university will level a city block to create a green space and take on numerous infrastructure projects as part of its downtown campus master plan. “We just want a balance,” said MacEwan Associate Vice President Stuart MacLean. “What we want to do is to develop the campus, not just to allow pedestrian circulation, but to encourage it and the way to encourage it is to bring in open spaces and to correct the imbalance of the automobile on the campus.” Edmonton Journal (AB)
