University requesting feedback on Utility Master Plan draft


Senior Associate Vice President for Facilities and Operational Support Joe Lalley has confirmed six speaking engagements during Earth Week to vet the contents of the University’s Utility Master Plan draft (UMP). That document contains recommendations for moving Ohio University’s infrastructure forward in a way that contributes to the institution’s goals and values.

The vetting sessions will feature an overview of the Utility Master Planning process, discoveries about institutional utilities and highlights from the draft Utility Master Plan document. Lalley will share the draft document of the Utility Master Plan, field questions and accept feedback regarding its contents. 

All members of the campus community are encouraged to engage in the vetting process by attending one of the sessions below or by submitting feedback electronically to lalley@ohio.edu. 

The full text of the draft Utility Master Plan is available in PDF format online for viewing prior to the events: https://www.ohio.edu/facilities/upload/Utility-Master-Plan-Draft.pdf
