La Verne is working to move into the future with its master plan, which looks to add new facilities, including academic buildings, residence halls and parking lots, to its main campus. However, with all of this planned construction comes unfortunate demolition.
The Board of Trustees voted to approve the staging and financial proposal for Phase I of the University’s Master Plan at its Friday meeting, allowing the University to move forward to the construction phase.
The beginning of the school year marked the opening of the new on-campus parking structure as faculty, staff members, students and key La Verne residents participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony 4:30 p.m. Sept. 1 at the Lawn.
As the new on-campus parking structure nears the end of its construction, there are plans to open it for University of La Verne students, faculty and staff to use between mid July to early August, ahead of its original Aug. 15 opening date and Sept. 1 official grand opening.
As work continues on the parking structuresouth of the Campus Center, Roger Alvarez installs the cutting hand beam system that supports the roof of the second floor of the four story structure.
The University changed 10 visitor parking spaces into residential spots in response to a petition from the Associated Students of the University of La Verne.
A recent parking change in front of the Campus Center has added 10 desperately needed spots for residents but has also created an issue for prospective students and families interested in visiting the University of La Verne.
President Devorah Lieberman and 15 other administrators responded to about 40 students’ pressing issues, such as lack of housing, parking issues and lack of programs for Hispanic students, at the Associated Students of University of La Verne’s town hall meeting Oct. 16 in Morgan Auditorium.
Parking issues are not new to the University of La Verne, but residents should be the last ones to feel the effects of the reduced spots and parking changes made through the fall semester.
