“The York University Development Corporation (YUDC) is planning for the future development of the Keele campus edge precincts—the Lands for Learning—and we want your input. The edge precincts are the lands outside of the Academic Core on the south side of Steeles Avenue, west side of Keele Street and south of The Pond Road. Your input will help us to prepare the Lands for Learning Guiding Principles and Framework Plans that will guide the physical development of the edge precincts. Your thoughts and opinions as campus users are important to this planning process and will ensure that the Lands for Learning meet the needs of the YorkU community into the future.
YUDC has retained The Planning Partnership, the authors of the recent Updated Campus Master Plan, as the lead consultants for this project. Jane Farrow, former CBC Radio One host and best-selling author, is helping to facilitate the conversations with the York community.
Join us in the Lands for Learning Studio and engage in conversations on the future of the campus edge precincts. Current YorkU students will serve as Studio Attendants and Ambassadors and will be available to provide information about the project, lead visioning activities, and record your comments.
The Studio will be active in York Lanes, located right across the hall from the bookstore, from November 5th through January 16th. The Studio is open on Tuesdays from 10-3, Wednesdays from 10-1, and Thursdays from 10-3 each week.
Vouchers will be handed out on campus throughout the upcoming weeks, inviting participants to visit the Studio, share their ideas, and receive a free $5 York Lanes Gift Card.
Visit the Lands for Learning Website for more information on the Lands for Learning and how to participate in the consultation and to submit your comments.
Please share this information with your YorkU networks. We look forward to hearing from you!”
“It is not everyday that we as students get an opportunity to engage with the development of our university, particularly from a planning perspective. York students truly have a unique opportunity to contribute to the future of the institution through Lands for Learning.”
