Loretta Ucelli , executive vice president of Communications and External Affairs, invites you to attend an open house to discuss the University's proposed expansion into the Manhattanville section of West Harlem. This is an opportunity to learn about the proposed expansion plan -- including its economic benefits, urban design elements, and zoning and public approvals -- in an interactive setting. Individuals also will have the opportunity to speak with members of the campus plan team and provide input into the planning process. All members of the University community are invited to attend, and light refreshments will be served.
The open house will be held at the Medical Center Campus on Friday, Feb. 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Alumni Auditorium ( Black Building). The discussion is part of an ongoing series that also will include future participation from Columbia's neighbors and other members of the public.
Comments from the University community are an important part of the planning process, so everyone is encouraged to attend and participate.
