of 60 acres of fish production ponds on campus.
The latest concept would require less space on
campus, with development of about three acres of
ponds as demonstration sites and for working with ex

so much as research," said Reaves.

BCC Board Working On Campus
Plan To Meet Demands Of Growth
BY SUSAN USHKR
Brunswick Community College
trustees are trying to develop a new
master plan for the main campus
north of Supply, anticipating addi
tion of new programs, growth in en
rollment and the demand for space
those changes might create.
The trustees were to begin their
work Wednesday, March 25, at a
5:30 p.m. workshop in their board
room, using as a starling point a
"rough first draft" presented last
week at their regular meeting.
"It's a good working document,"
Chairman David Kelly told Kenneth
Phelps of Boncy Architects, the con
sultants hired to develop the five
year plan. "We had to get it on paper
so we could react to it."
"Some of the priorities I personal
ly think ought to be rearranged," he
continued as trustees took their first
look at the study and accompanying
maps. "But I'm willing to listen to
The study looks at space needs
based on 12 priorities and attempts
to devise a plan for campus develop
ment. Projected program expansion
was assessed based on data provided
by faculty and staff, while indicators
used to set priorities came from ad
Both the ratings and the estimated
space needs arc based on "guesses,"
Phelps said at the Wednesday night
meeting, and need refining.
"It's a beginning," Phelps said,
stressing that the document was a
rough draft presented so that some
body "could shoot at it."
"We reached the point where we
didn't know who else or what else to
ask," he said. "Nothing would
please me more than for you to take
a red pen and mark this thing all to

program, including a vocational ed
ucation bay area, equipment shed
and nine -hole, 6()-acre golf course
(or a par-3 course which would re
quire one-third that space).
To the first target date of 1995, al
so identilied as top needs are addi
tional spacc to house an expanded
allied health curriculum, including
an associatc-dcgrec nursing program
and food scicncc/food service cur
riculum. Several additions to the al
lied health curriculum arc expccted
this coming year with no demand
for additional space.
Other priorities identified for
1993 through 1995 include:
?A greenhouse for the Brunswick
Interagency Program, which is also
seeking a sheltered workshop pro
?A scencry shop and other storage
for the new auditorium;
?A day care/child care center that
could be located either on or off
campus, depending on whether it
would primarily serve the campus or
the general public;
?A three-acre fish pond, equipment
shed and classroom/office area for

The draft study divides the cam
pus into three sectors, north (north
of the U.S. 17 bypass) south (exist
ing campus) and central (the area
around the new auditorium). Those
areas arc defined generally by natur
al "barriers" such as the new U.S. 17
bypass, a Brunswick Electric right
of-way easement, existing U.S. 17
and the new access road to U.S. 17.
The college's northern property,
across the bypass, will be accessible
by only one road.
As one example, Phelps suggest
ed that might tend to make the north
sector more useful for lower-density
applications such as the golf coursc
and recreational facilities, while aca
demic space might be concentrated
in the central campus area.
