2019 Mid-Atlantic Conference – The Greater College Park Initiative: Partnerships in Planning and Development to Enhance the Broader Community

Presented by Carlo Colella

The “Greater College Park Initiative” is a signature multi-year effort in President Wallace Loh’s leadership and administration to continue positive town/gown relations with development that enhances both the university campus and surrounding communities.
This talk will provide an overview of University of Maryland’s (UMD) strategic plan and how it is supported by the five-year update to the university’s facilities master plan, approved in 2017. It will discuss current local and regional planning initiatives as well as campus and community development projects, including the associated partnerships and collaborations with municipal, organizational, and private-sector partners.
