Members of the Rutgers community are invited to learn about the master plan process at Rutgers-New Brunswick and see the new master plan for the campus at the annual Isadore Candeub Memorial Lecture in Planning.
On Wednesday, November 4 Tony Calcado, Rutgers’ Vice President of Facilities and Capital Planning, will give an overview of the process, share planning concepts developed after outreach to the university community and stakeholder input, and take questions and comments from the audience about the new master plan.
The event begins at 4:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. RSVP is requested by visiting http://go.rutgers.edu/buua3wsc. A brief reception will follow the lecture.
The university physical master planning process is an important opportunity to engage the entire Rutgers community—faculty, staff, students, neighbors—in envisioning the future for its surroundings. Rutgers’ most recent physical master plan was completed in 2003; since then, the university has gone through significant growth and change. The current round of physical master planning, taking into account ongoing strategic planning efforts, will reassess each campus’s needs and goals, both individually and as part of the entire Rutgers University. The physical master planning process will establish a baseline status and then produce strategies for future growth that respond to the university’s long-term goals. These strategies, grounded in the vision and goals of the strategic plan, will guide future decision making and define paths toward implementation. Through these strategies, the physical master plan will empower a different type of thinking and process, enabling the university to carefully respond to changing circumstances, and ensuring that mission drives the development of Rutgers’ physical environment.
Related to this event, from Sept. 2015 through December 2016 the Bloustein School will have a small exhibit of the New Brunswick Campus historic and current master plans in the lobby of the Civic Square Building.
1.5 AICP Certification Maintenance credits have been requested for this event.
The annual Isadore Candeub Memorial Lecture in Planning was established in the memory of Isadore Candeub in tribute to his long and successful career as a planning consultant and to his extraordinary dedication to planning in towns, cities and regions across America. Before his passing in 1986 he was chairman of the executive committee of Candeub, Fleissig & Associates, consultants in community development and environmental planning. Mr. Candeub, with Morris B. Fleissig, a lawyer, founded the firm in Newark in 1953. Earlier he had spent 20 months in the Federal Government as chief planner for the Northeastern region of the Housing and Home Finance Agency, precursor of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. He was a 1943 graduate of the City College of New York; did graduate work at Columbia University and received a master’s degree in 1948 from the School of Architecture and City Planning of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
