Forums scheduled to discuss north quad revitalization

NAU President John Haeger has scheduled two open forums next week to discuss details of a north campus revitalization project that is scheduled to begin in July.

The forums will be held from 3-5 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, and from 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, July 6. Both will be held at the High Country Conference Center.

A question-and-answer session will follow.

The forums also will be webcast, and web participants may email their questions to

The changes to the north campus quad are part of the university’s master plan, which was developed through wide campus participation and input. The forum will include presentations by representatives from Peak Engineering, master plan consultant Ayers/Saint/Gross and local landscape architect Pam Symond.

The group will provide a detailed overview of the project, including information about the planning process and a tree preservation plan that is part of the university’s master plan.

Additional forums also may be scheduled so that updates and information can be shared. Haeger also will meet with any campus group that would like to discuss the project, and said that all discussions are in preparation for a decision and action in the near future.
