University's Master Plan to Pleasantville Campus to Improve Infrastructure and Upgrade Facilities
Pace University is moving forward with a new chapter in its history. After nearly three years of internal study and planning, the University will present its new vision for...
...the Pleasantville campus at a public hearing on May 3, 2012. The project to create a sustainable campus that reduces dependence on cars and encourages pedestrian activity, preserving approximately 60 percent of the campus’ green space, is projected to cost $150 million.
“We believe this is an important step in the economic development of Westchester County,” says William Mooney, president of the Westchester County Association. “Our BLUEPRINT for Westchester enthusiastically supports this project as it represents a significant investment in Westchester and incorporates sustainable development.”
Pace University has been an integral part of Westchester County for almost half a century. They are the county’s largest university and one of its largest employers. It is estimated that Pace contributes over $64 million annually to Westchester’s economy in direct and indirect spending.
There will be a presentation of the Master Plan on Wednesday, April 25, at 5:30 pm in the Goldstein Fitness Center on Pace University’s Pleasantville campus. This will be followed by another public hearing on Thursday, May 3, at which the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for a Master Plan to consolidate the functions currently handled in Briarcliff Manor and move them to the Pleasantville campus will be presented.
“I encourage everyone to attend,” said Mooney. “It’s important to support projects that make sense for the economic growth of our county and improve life for the surrounding community.”
