UVic is inviting comment on a management plan for the university's Cedar Hill Corner property, formerly known as the CJVI lands. The management plan will guide the day-to-day use of the land until the Campus Plan is reviewed in 2012.
Current uses of the parcel include soil storage and processing by the university's facilities management department and a UVic Centre for Forest Biology
research field compound. The land is also used informally by the public as
a dog walking area.
The 12.4-hectare parcel, which the Campus Plan designates as a site for future development, is located on the southeast side of campus between Cedar Hill Cross Road and the South Woods.
"We developed the draft plan in consultation with operational and academic departments and members of the campus community," says Neil Connelly, director of the Office of Campus Planning and Sustainability. "It includes a framework for assessing temporary use proposals and provides a set of actions to address ongoing management issues."
The draft plan is now available for review at http://web.uvic.ca/sustainability/planning.php. Please email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 9. All comments will be considered in the preparation of a final report to be completed by the end of 2010 for the Campus Planning Committee.
