Campus Master Plan The Campus Master Plan is designed to accommodate Temple College’s current and future needs, to make a more compact pedestrian friendly campus, and to provide a phasing schedule that will allow rearrangement of parking and building locations without undue stress. Design concepts incorporated into this plan include: Identifying a palette of materials to reinforce a campus identity Location of buildings relative to division Creation of complimentary vehicular and pedestrian circulation systems Creation of landscaped plaza areas to compliment the surrounding buildings and facilitate extracurricular communication Development of supplementary sports fields and outdoor track The Land Use Plan reflects: Consolidation of support staff services. Concentration of Academic areas on the West Campus Development of Health and Nursing on the East Campus Eventual connection of the Visual Arts Campus to the West Campus. Relocation of parking to the Campus perimeter Segregation of parking from the Campus Loop Drive Campus Master Plan Phasing Options Phase 1: 2005-2006 Relocate one golf fairway and hole. Shorten another fairway. Add a relief parking lot on the East Campus, at the pedestrian bridge Provide new exit from Campus Loop Drive onto 5th Street Close Campus Drive east of the Math Science Building Entrance and improve pedestrian access from Math Science to other campus facilities Rework Administration Building parking lot for additional spaces Improve delivery access to Arnold Student Union and Maintenance Building Watson Tech Deferred Maintenance and Renovations Nursing Building Addition and Renovation Permanent Maintenance Storage Facility Landscape Phase 2: 2007-2008 New Classroom Building between One College Center and Dawson Library MAMPAC Band Hall, Black Box Theater and Rest Room Renovation/Additions MAMPAC Auditorium and Lobby Renovations and Additions One College Center Cashier’s Office Renovations and Glare and Acoustical Remediations Greenhouse Shadehouse Phase 3: 2008-2010 Demo West ISC Code Renovations to East ISC Rest Rooms, Accessible Entry at West side of Building, Window and Electrical Upgrades New Science Building on West Campus, South of New Quad Landscape new Academic Quad.

Additional Parking at 2211 South 5th St City Lot Day Care Center at 2211 South 5th St City Lot Phase 4: 2015-2020 Physical Education Building Expansion and Renovation Newton Science Deferred Maintenance, Rest Room Renovations and Conversion of some Lab to Lecture Space Health Sciences Expansion Phase 5: 2020 Additional Land Acquisition to connect Visual Arts Campus and West Campus Pedestrian Improvements to connect Visual Arts Campus and West Campus Arnold Student Center Upgrades New Nursing and Health Center Library and Lecture Hall Campus Master Plan Phase 1: 2005-2006 Options for Phase 1 of the Campus Master Plan are in response to available funds already identified, and items prioritized by the Master Plan Committee. Phase 1 projects have been identified as: Relocate one golf fairway and hole. Shorten another fairway Add a 306 space relief parking lot on the East Campus, at the pedestrian bridge Rework Administration Building parking lot for additional spaces Provide a new Campus Loop exit onto 5th Street Watson Tech Deferred Maintenance and Renovations Nursing Building Addition and Renovation A major focus of this phase is to deal with existing campus parking and traffic problems. Recent construction of the Health Sciences Center has put more students and faculty onto the East Campus, and new buildings on the West Campus anticipated in later phases of development will take up some of the existing parking areas for construction staging and/or building footprint. The current routing of the Campus Drive Loop through loading areas and double loaded parking lots is frustrating and dangerous. Rerouting the Campus Loop Drive from these areas will serve to improve traffic flow and make safer pedestrian and parking areas. The Nursing Building expansion and renovation is a project that is scheduled to begin in December of this year. The Watson Tech Building has a more than $500,000 in deferred maintenance issues, the largest being the replacement of the HVAC system. Also, while the Automotive Engineering department enrollment is in decline, the space in which it currently resides could be given over to more Lab and/or office space. It would be best to size the replacement HVAC system for the anticipated use of this building. The Maintenance Department’s current storage facility is only available through the charity of a neighbor. It is an older facility with no assurance of continued availability.

Renovations to the Cashier’s Office are in order to make it function more efficiently. Moving the service window from the east side to the south side of the office will allow the students to queue in the larger, quieter vestibule space, instead of in the tight space between the monumental staircase and the east lobby wall. With Campus vehicular circulation and adequate parking addressed, it would be a good time to renovate and expand the MAMPAC if funds are available. The renovations are primarily focused on providing soundproofed teaching and office spaces. The additions include a new Band Hall, a new Black Box Theater with access to the Auditorium Lobby, and loading dock and rest room facilities. If funds allow, expansion of the Lobby would solve some acoustic problems, and grandfathered code violations. At present there is no fire separation between the Lobby and the Auditorium; open stairwells connect the two spaces and provide a conduit for unwanted noise. This project would temporarily take some parking out of circulation. Greenhouse and Shadehouse buildings for plant propagation and nurturing have been proposed by the Landscape Committee as a means of furthering the College’s aspiration as an Arboretum, and also as a potential fund raising tool (ie. plant sales). Their location by the Maintenance building would be convenient for the groundskeeper crews as well as the biology department, which might find these facilities useful for botany and taxonomy classes. Campus Master Plan Phase 3: 2008-2010 Options for Phase 3 of the Campus Master Plan are: Demo West ISC Code Renovations to East ISC: Rest Rooms Accessible Entry at West side of Building Window and electrical upgrades New Science Building on new Academic Quad Landscape new Academic Quad. Include outdoor seating and tables, with various covered areas assigned to Smokers and Non-Smokers Administration Building Renovations, (Classroom to Office conversions) Rework Parking Lots at South end of West Campus for smaller assigned parking lots, with safe, well-lit, pedestrian access to campus. Additional Parking at 2211 South 5th St City Lot New Buildings at 2211 South 5th St City Lot (Day Care Center?) The Instructional Services Center (ISC) is the oldest building on campus. Built in 1957, it has served a long and useful life, undergoing many transformations. The west wing of the ISC was originally a gymnasium; it serves at present as classroom and office space. However, it isn’t in the best condition. The building has a split-level between the East and West wings without an elevator or a stairlift for handicapped access. The rest rooms are substandard and the finishes are not durable. Renovations to the East wing of the ISC would alleviate those problems. Demolition of the West ISC will pave the way for relocation of the parking lot at the center of the West Campus to the south. This would be the appropriate time to restripe the south parking lots to make smaller, north south oriented, sticker restricted parking lots, with pedestrian connections back to the campus. The restriping would take the Campus Loop Drive to the outside perimeter of the Campus; access from the parking lots would be marked with stop signs. Following this wet spring there were many responses on the student questionnaires asking for covered sidewalks, and certainly some shelters could be constructed on these pedestrian connections. Construction of a new Science Building in the parking lot north of the West ISC would complete the 4th wall of a central Academic Quad. Construction of this facility is in response to the lack of space and modern facilities in the Newton Science Building, the renovation of which is addressed in the next phase. During construction of this facility, the Central parking lot will have to be abandoned for Contractor staging, and then for landscaping and hardscaping into the main Academic Quad, bounded by the new Classroom and Lecture Hall building to the east, the new Science Laboratory and Classroom building to the South, Newton Science Building to the west, and One College Center to the North. The Academic Quad will offer pleasant, convenient, and speedy access between the academic facilities. With the transfer of teaching spaces to the Academic Quad, consolidation of staff support office spaces into the Administration Building can be completed. Also, it is anticipated that some of the faculty office space supporting programs in the Watson Tech facility would be located in the Administration Building. Campus Master Plan The college has an opportunity to acquire use of the city lot at 2211 South 5 th St. This lot was previously the site of an apartment complex which was condemned by the city. As such it was already ringed with asphalt parking lots and has a good stand of large oaks in the old courtyard. This lot could economically be rehabilitated to provide more parking and building facilities, perhaps a Day Care Center. If the College chooses to pursue a Day Care Center, the city zoning office has indicated that that could be done under the college’s present zoning if the Day Care Center was a teaching facility. The mature trees on this site suggest a good area for a playground. Mature trees at 2211 South 5th Street Campus Master Plan Phase 4: 2010-2015 Options for Phase 4 of the Campus Master Plan are: Physical Education Building Expansion and Renovation Newton Science Renovations Health Sciences Expansion The Physical Education building serves the student body (minimum course requirement of two courses) and also the general public who can purchase memberships. At present, the weightlifting and exercise facilities are spilling out into the corridors and stairwells for lack of space. The gymnasium floor is in need of replacement, the upper floors are not accessible to the handicapped, and the locker room and restroom facilities are inadequate. As the student enrollment grows the Physical Education Department will need to grow also. The staff would like to have a new competition gymnasium with an indoor track, and use the existing gym for classes and intramural sports and recreation. Seating areas in the existing gym could be converted to weight and exercise room spaces, and the new facility could provide the vertical transportation equipment missing in the existing. After construction of the new Science Building, it’s recommended that the Newton Science Center be converted to use for Biology Labs and larger classrooms. It also needs larger refurbished restroom facilities. An addition to the new Health Sciences Center is already anticipated in response to the state’s need for health professionals. This project would only be pursued after close consultation with the College’s partners at Scott and White. Campus Master Plan Phase 5: 2015-2020 Options for Phase 5 of the Campus Master Plan are: Additional Land Acquisition to connect Visual Arts Campus and West Campus Pedestrian Improvements to connect Visual Arts Campus and West Campus Arnold Student Center Upgrades New Nursing and Health Sciences Library and Lecture Hall If Temple College continues to grow, the natural area in which to expand would be to the north of West Campus, connecting to the Visual Arts Campus and the Del Martin Site. Road construction on South 1st street has caused drainage problems between the Del Martin Site and the Administration Building which would need to be addressed. Once intervening properties have been absorbed, a pedestrian linkage should be constructed. Currently the north edge of West Campus is bounded by a concrete lined drainage ditch, which could be bridged or covered. Upgrades to the Arnold Student Center could really happen in any phase of the Master Plan but have been held to the final phase so that more urgent priorities can be addressed. Suggestions for this space include outdoor dining facilities, quieter, more inviting interior spaces, rest rooms, elevators, and new furniture. Further expansions of the Nursing School and Health Sciences Complex are anticipated in response to community and Texas needs.
