In 2000, by engaging with individual and group constituents, the University developed a Master Plan for the EWU campus.
Eastern Washington University is a student-centered, regionally based, comprehensive university.
At the core of Eastern's values is the idea of quality, characterized by a rigorous and challenging academic experience. Our mission to be a student-centered, regionally engaged university will be fulfilled best through a distinguished EWU academic experience that is integrated and interdependent. An integrated academic environment fosters connections among disciplines, between faculty and students, and with campus and community. To ensure that significant issues and concerns were identified early in the planning process, a number of activities were undertaken. This extensive issue identification process insured that there were multiple opportunities for interested individuals to interact with the planning process and make their views known. Accommodate the objectives set forth in the Mission Statement and the current Academic Strategic Plan.
Accommodate enrollments of 12,000 FTE’s at Cheney and satellite campuses throughout the state. On campus and off campus student housing options will be adequate to accommodate the current and future needs of the university. Improve utilization of existing classrooms and laboratories by scheduling more afternoon (and possibly evening) classes, and improving the technology in all classrooms. Encourage students, staff, and faculty, to choose transportation alternatives to single occupant private vehicles. Improve wayfinding to guide visitors to the campus, and then to guide them to their desired on-campus destination. Enhance the collegiate identity of the campus, in part by improving its visual appeal (e.g.
From these goals the master planning process went on to develop a list of significant findings.
Existing Academic Building Capacity The existing academic buildings on campus have the capacity to accommodate the expected 2010 enrollment. Utilization of Existing Academic Space Analysis of current classroom and laboratory use patterns indicates that academic facilities are used to man average of 64% of capacity during the hours of 8:00 AM to noon. Relations with the City of Cheney Relations between EWU and the City are cordial and cooperative. Compact Campus A strong positive feature of the campus is that its central academic area is compact. Extensive Land Holdings The EWU campus contains some 329.5 acres, less than half of which are developed.
Similar to all large institutional facilities, users frequently complain about a “lack of parking”.
The City of Cheney and some neighbors have expressed concern about the amount of EWU-related parking that occurs on public streets in the vicinity of the campus. Enhance transit use by offering free or low cost bus passes, improve bus frequency, improve evening and weekend service, provide real time departure information, and provide a comfortable waiting area in the PUB. Encourage car and van pooling by providing driver-rider matching and close-in reserved parking.
As of the spring of 2000, there were approximately 1600 on-campus beds available for students. Fall of 2004, the number of available on and near campus beds increased to approximately 2050 beds. The University’s mission includes encouraging and fostering an increase in the percentage of students who live on and near campus in University housing.
The area bounded by Washington, Oakland, 9th, and Elm Streets, when combined with Pearce and Dressler Halls, contains most of the existing campus housing plus several privately owned apartments that primarily serve students.
The City reservoirs are located on a high point in the northeast corner of the residential community. In Fall 2002, the University participated with a private developer to open a 135-bed residence hall (Brewster Hall), three blocks off-campus in downtown Cheney. Given the early success of the Brewster Hall project, the University may consider further public-private ventures to meet housing needs. Evening and Weekend Activities One of the complaints expressed by campus residents is that there are insufficient activities, and insufficient late evening food service alternatives. Recreational Activities As expressed above, students desire more opportunities to partake in casual recreational activities both on and off campus. Tawanka Commons is a building located in the heart of the academic core between Showalter Hall and the PUB. Campus Access Most students and visitors arrive at campus from the north, via State Route 904.
At present, visitors are directed to the Red Barn for information and parking instructions. Pedestrian Crossings Students cross Elm and Washington Streets at four major crossing points. The University Campus Planning Committee (UCPC), which includes representatives of both the University and the City, met on a number of occasions to review guiding documents, evaluate findings, search for ways to integrate EWU and the City, and develop planning recommendations. Renovate Hargreaves Hall Hargreaves Hall is proposed to be renovated to return it to its historic character.
Remodel Martin Hall Martin Hall requires a minor renovation to create one or more 40+ person flat floor lecture rooms to address this campus wide need.
Renovate Patterson Hall Patterson Hall should be renovated to address deficiencies outlined in the space utilization study.
Renovate Isle Hall Isle Hall should be renovated to address deficiencies outlined in the space utilization study.
Create Research Campus One of the many functions of a university is to foster research, which includes providing a physical environment supportive of the needs of researchers. Status 2010: Rethink location of this Campus as new science building plus CEB are will be located closer to core of campus.
Create Visitor's Center Complex The main feature of this recommended project is the Visitor Center building. Construct the Rose Circle The Rose Circle is proposed to be a garden landscape with paths, hedges, roses and possibly other ornamental plants. Create Landscape and Entry at One-room Schoolhouse An authentic one-room schoolhouse has been placed on campus and sited to engage the circular path feature opposite the entry to Williamson Hall. Status 2010: As of Spring 2004, interior work has been completed and the building is now in use. Extend Mall Paving to Dressler Hall The mall paving materials and motifs would be extended from the library to Dressler Hall. Extend Mall Paving to Washington Street The mall paving materials and design details could be extended to connect the central mall to Washington Street. Improve Dorm Entry Landscapes The entry plazas at Pearce and Dressler Halls could be improved by installing unit pavers. Create Bus Lobby This project could be part of an expansion to the existing seating area in the new portion of the PUB. Extend Pedestrian Mall to 6th Street This project would begin with closure and possible vacation of "F" Street between 6th and 7th Streets. Extension of Mall Along F street to 6th completed in 2007, Entry Garden completed in 2007.
Improve Pedestrian Routes This project includes three areas where extension of the mall paving system is proposed.
Restore Well House and Landscape The well house is a City structure and this project would need to be pursued in partnership with the City of Cheney. Improve Parking Lot (Reserve Site for Future Academic Building) Additional trees could be added to the space between wheel stops in this parking lot. Develop Raised Crossing The intersection of Elm and 10th Streets should be reconstructed to make the pedestrian crossing safer. Create Boulevard If acceptable to the City, 10th Street between Elm and Cedar could be developed as an enhanced pedestrian route between the housing area and the academic core by reducing the street width to two 12-foot lanes and eliminating parking. Create Head-In Parking As part of the Visitor Center Project, parking along 7th Street between "F" and "G" Streets will be evaluated to determine how to maximize parking and reduce vehicular and pedestrian traffic conflicts. Acquire Washington Court Properties The campus has grown over the years and now completely surrounds a small residential enclave on Washington Court (near the intersection of Washington and Elm Streets). Create Park Around City Water Towers The City owned land around the City water towers should be improved to provide passive and active recreation opportunities, and better quality open space.
Expand and Improve Head-in Parking If acceptable to the City, head-in parking can be provided along both sides of 10th Street between Cedar and Oakland Streets. Improve Parking Lot (Reserve Site for Future Parking Structure) This existing parking lot is proposed to be reconfigured.
Expand and Improve On-street Parking Head-in and parallel parking is proposed to be retained and, if acceptable to the City, expanded as practical along 11th Street. Improve Landscape The open space west of the steam plant is proposed to be improved with tree plantings as this area is highly visible from Washington Street.
Develop Multi-use Trail System A multiple-use trail system is proposed to be developed west of the recreation facilities consisting of three major elements: 1) the main perimeter path, 2) secondary paths, 3) native plantings. Improve Historic District Landscape A separate study has been prepared addressing materials and furnishing standards, as well as transition landscapes and features around the historic district.
Improve Landscape Around Stadium The large area around the northern end of the stadium parking area is to be enhanced with fixed bleacher seating and tree, shrub, and ground cover plantings. Improve Pedestrian Connection The pedestrian linkage between the existing free parking lot and Washington Street is proposed to be enhanced to serve stadium users as well as people parking and walking to the center of campus.
Plant Rows of Wind Breaks The western portion of the campus that rims the upper playfields, Chissus baseball field and the water storage tower is reserved for future campus expansion. Improve Parking Lot (Reserve Site for Future Academic Building) This parking lot is proposed to be improved with trees and ground cover plantings. Status 2010: Elevators, exterior doors and access controls will be upgraded in Summer 2010. Create Art Walk The existing pedestrian path from the arts complex to the mall could become an "art walk".
Create Informal Amphitheater The space behind the JFK Library should remain an informal large lawn space.
Improve Parking Lot (Reserve Sites for Future Academic Bldgs.)This parking lot could be improved by the removal of overly tall evergreen hedges and the installation of trees, new shrubs, and groundcovers. Create Science Commons The space between Cheney Hall and the Science building is proposed to be enhanced through the removal of a minor amount of parking and the addition of tree plantings to reinforce pedestrian routes.
This project has broadened to encompass the green space that is partially bounded to the west by the Computing & Engineering Building, on the north by the existing Science Building, and from the east by the John F. Improve Parking Lot This parking lot is proposed to be improved with asphalt paving, concrete curbs, and landscaped planting areas. Improve Parking Lot This parking area can be improved with the addition of trees and ground covers between rows of stalls. Improve Housing Perimeter Landscape The existing townhouse area contains only a limited amount of perimeter landscaping and appears "stark". Create the Theater Garden The existing garden south of Showalter Hall will be impacted by proposed parking and circulation changes in the immediate vicinity. Create Screening Landscape The maintenance area is essential to campus operations and must contain and accommodate uses that are often unsightly. Create Campus Parkway This proposed project would provide a much improved entry to campus from the north, and would create a strong visual edge to the urban area. Create New Entry Area The existing campus entry from the north along Washington Street is very weak.
Restore 2-way Traffic EWU should encourage the City to designate "F" Street for two-way movement.
Improve Pedestrian Amenities on Street The street scape should be improved with the addition of planting strips with street trees, and sidewalk repairs as necessary along the west side of 7th Street. Enhance ‘G’ Street The City and the University have agreed that G Street would be an appropriate main entrance to campus from downtown. Reserve for Parking The existing tennis court site and the adjacent grassy area to the south is an ideal location to provide for future campus parking needs.
Restore Pump House Restore facades - The facades of this building should be restored to enhance the historic district. Improve Parking Lot Perimeter and interior landscape plantings should be added to improve the visual appearance of the lot on the same block as the Indian Education Center building.

In 1989 he received a Bachelor of Architecture with honors from the University of Houston and was awarded the Alpha Rho Chi Medal for service to the College.
Drawing on the expertise of those that use the campus, recommended improvements were identified.
What seems like the best course today may not be appropriate in the future as student interests and needs change, as technology advances, as public objectives and funding mechanisms shift, and as market conditions change. Its campus is located in Cheney, within the Spokane metropolitan area, with additional learning centers in the region and elsewhere in Washington State. This quality is a hallmark of EWU-in our student learning and success, in our distinctive academic programs, in the excellence of our faculty and staff and in our connections to our communities near and far.
Such an integrated experience is rich in opportunities for exploration, discovery and learning.
First, the University Campus Planning Committee (UCPC) was consulted to identify issues of concern to faculty, students, administrators, and to the City of Cheney. Comments and data generated through these multiple approaches provided input and guidance to the planning process. These findings are the results of comparisons of planning goals with the opportunities and constraints presented by existing conditions on campus. This means that, with some remodeling of existing buildings and classrooms, student population can increase by roughly 25% over 2003-2004 levels without straining the supply of academic space. Both organizations are cooperating to find solutions to common problems - such as student parking on neighborhood streets, traffic congestion during peak hours, water availability for both EWU and Cheney, and reuse of polished wastewater for irrigation purposes. Virtually all academic buildings are located within an easy five minute walk of the JFK Library.
The additional acreage, located west of Washington, insures flexibility to accommodate future growth without having a significant impact on private properties in Cheney. What they really mean is there is a “lack of parking near the front door” of their specific destination.
The large number of vehicles to be accommodated requires large parking areas which must, of necessity, be located at some distance from the academic core.
In response, EWU and City staffs worked together on a parking study which is leading to a parking management program designed to reduce impacts on the neighborhood. The demand for on and near campus University housing has picked up in recent years and virtually all beds are now assigned to students. In discussions with students, it became apparent that students prefer development of a “housing community” that is compact, located close to the academic core, and which contains supportive facilities and accommodates recreational needs. This area also contains the EWU boiler plant, City of Cheney water reservoirs, private residences on Washington Court, and a substantial amount of parking for residents.
Within the next 10 years, it is recommended that up to 550 additional beds be developed in this area. The plan proposes that the reservoir area be landscaped and that recreational facilities be developed for the use of students living in the area.


Under the terms of the public-private partnership agreement, the developer financed and constructed the new residence hall based on design specifications developed by the University. Central Mall The recently developed central mall is well liked by students, staff, faculty, and visitors.
Students have asked for more recreational (as opposed to organized) sports activities, additional on and off campus recreational opportunities, particularly on evenings and on weekends. This position is very significant as it is a connection between the historic district and the academic core. Just before reaching Betz Road, signage directs students and visitors to turn right (west) on Betz Road.
As some drivers are less than courteous to pedestrians, improved and raised crosswalks may be appropriate at some locations to slow drivers and provide an increased sense of safety for students. The UCPC concluded that, in general, the campus is developing in a manner supportive of the goals of the Mission Statement, Vision 2010, the strategic Academic Plan, and the City of Cheney.
These rooms would be created from rooms that currently have a relatively low level of utilization. These improvements include an upgrade of the mechanical system, replacement of finish materials (e.g. These improvements include upgrading the HVAC system, and replacing worn finish materials (e.g. Eastern has a location on the west side of Washington Street that can be developed as a "research campus".
This structure will be the location where visitors are directed to be welcomed to campus, oriented, and further assisted in reaching campus and city destinations.
This garden landscape is located as a terminus point and entry landscape from "C" street onto campus.
The building, a historic structure, can also be used as an actual "classroom" or conference room.
The paving palette and motifs would draw from the existing mall paving to unify these spaces with other pedestrian areas. In addition, consideration should be given to minimizing the amount of asphalt paving, while retaining the current STA bus circulation pattern and truck access to the PUB loading area. The linkage between the major path alongside the PUB terrace and the raised crossing at Elm and 10th Streets (see Project 26) is proposed to be enhanced. The recaptured street width would then be used to create eight-foot wide planting strips and ten-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of the street. Of the six parcels fronting on this court, five are privately owned and one is owned by EWU. The City staff is amenable to this proposal and is willing to work with the EWU staff to resolve liability, maintenance, and other potential issues. This street could also be improved with the addition of a sidewalk on the east side of the street and additional planting of street trees on both sides of the street. A concrete walk would be constructed to connect the southernmost bays to the 10th Street sidewalk.
That study should be referenced for additional comments and recommendations for the historic district and its edges. Sufficient space may exist to address storm water requirements for these parking areas (see project 41) just west of the lower tier of stalls. As part of this action, the access route to the large, free parking lot west of the stadium is proposed to be realigned and rebuilt with sidewalks and street trees. There is an existing plan for expansion of the restroom and press box facilities including a paved plaza space and new fencing. More generous landscape areas planted with trees and ground covers are proposed to soften the appearance of this parking lot. Until this land is needed for campus expansion, a series of planted windbreaks is proposed to complement the proposed trail system and develop a sense of enclosure at the west campus perimeter. The northwestern parking bays could be moved back five to ten feet to allow a row of trees to be planted between the parking lot and the adjacent ball field.
A series of small pads or simple low podiums could be provided for the temporary display of student artwork. However, regrading of the slope to ease grades and creating a bowl shape would encourage additional use of this area.
A tree-lined walk at the east edge of the lot is suggested to connect the arts complex to the science district. The street scape along Washington should also be improved with new curbs, a planting strip, and a new sidewalk. The appearance - - and sense of privacy for residents - - could be much improved by planting trees and shrubs and by adding visual demarcation between housing units. This project involves improvement of a public road and would need to be approved and constructed by the City and County. Curb extensions, sidewalks, and planting strips with trees would improve this street but would require action by the City.
G Street would benefit from street scape enhancement similar to what has been accomplished on College Avenue. It is likely that parking for up to 500 additional vehicles will be needed as student enrollment increases.

Chan was accepted to the Master of Architecture program at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Chan accepted a position as a designer at the architecture firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Los Angeles.
Chan worked as a designer with the architectural firm of Baxter, Hodell, Donnelly and Preston in Cincinnati, Ohio.A  As a young designer at BHDP he worked directly for the design partners on retail, academic and laboratory buildings. In developing that plan, desires of the campus community, as well as opportunities and constraints presented by the facility were carefully considered. The point of campus planning is to make the best decisions possible at any given time based on a rational analysis of alternatives then available. Its mission is to prepare broadly educated, technologically proficient, and highly productive citizens to attain meaningful careers, to enjoy enriched lives, and to make contributions to a culturally diverse society. Second, contact was made with City of Cheney officials to discuss land use, transportation, utility, and neighborhood issues.
The planning team then took this input and evaluated opportunities and constraints, identified overlapping or competing goals, and developed a list of goals to be considered during the development of the updated campus Master Plan. These findings also incorporate comments and issues identified during the Master Planning process. University staff should be encouraged to continue to work with City officials to seek solutions to common problems and to search for opportunities to improve both EWU and the city. This compactness is a real benefit in that students relate to the entire campus, and not just to those portions that they use on a day-to-day basis. Analysis of existing parking patterns discloses that, on a typical day, some 300 existing parking spaces remain unused. The University should be at the forefront of encouraging campus users to use alternative forms of transportation. This ratio works on a number of Northwest campuses and is adequate to accommodate students, faculty, staff and visitors). Supportive facilities include “hang-out” space, late evening food service, game rooms, social spaces, and adequate and well-located places to park vehicles. Along with the addition of residential buildings, additional parking will be needed to accommodate resident needs. Facilities such as volleyball and basketball courts, walking paths, picnic tables, and possibly a skateboard park might be developed in this area.
The University has a 20-year lease with the developer to operate and maintain the facility as part of the University housing system. Access to off-campus activities via public transportation is extremely limited on evenings and weekends. Outdoor programs and opportunities for students to organize events are available, but could perhaps be expanded.
Tawanka Commons has recently been significantly modified and upgraded to better fit the architectural character of the campus.
This route, while efficient, brings everyone to campus via Washington Street, past the boiler plant, maintenance facility, and stadium parking. Most visitors are likely looking for admissions information, seeking the administrative staff, looking for specific academic departments, or looking for students who reside on campus.
Narrowing the width of the pedestrian crossings will also reduce intimidation of pedestrians by drivers and make them feel more secure as they stand on a raised walkway awaiting a break in traffic. To be of most use, it was determined that the Master Plan Update should be in the form of a series of improvement projects that will assist EWU in meeting its Mission Statement. The soundproofing between classrooms needs to be improved, upgrades to bring the building into compliance with ADA codes need to be addressed, and the HVAC system should be upgraded. As part of this renovation, audio visual capabilities and electronic technology capabilities should be upgraded in these rooms, and possibly in adjacent classrooms.
The area is close to the academic core, is reasonably level, essentially unencumbered, and easily accessible for employees and visitors. This should be a significant building of high architectural quality with respect to materials and design. It will also function as a transition feature between the historic district and the rest of campus.
The entry includes a small garden landscape for gatherings and provides a good location for interpretive signage.
It may also be appropriate to add a line of trees to visually reinforce this main spine across campus. In addition, landscape plantings, lighting, and seating should be added to encourage increased use of these spaces and to improve their appearance.
This room should have a large amount of glazing, provisions for vending and information about bus schedules and routes.
This improvement would require the design of stairs, wall, ramps, and curbs to address pedestrian circulation and grades, and would include landscape enhancement.
Vehicles could be relocated to a few reserved on-street spaces near the building to eliminate the need to park vehicles around the building. The need for additional academic space has not been identified based on growth figures and building capacities developed in this and other studies.
While these privately owned parcels are not needed immediately for campus residential purposes, within the next 10 years it is anticipated that the best use of this property will be to support expansion of campus housing. Planting islands to divide the parking area should occur frequently and be planted with trees and ground cover. If this is practical, the storm water feature should be designed with attention to the aesthetic results. The size of the level area available for parking can be increased through the installation of retaining walls. This plan is proposed to be implemented with slight revisions to address the proposed "beacon structure" (see below). Rows of trees are proposed to recall regional settlement patterns, mitigate drying winds, create drift zones for snow, and improve habitat for birds and small mammals. A need for additional academic space has not been identified based on growth figures and building capacities developed in this and other studies. A fanciful design for this awning may be appropriate to identify this building, and may be an opportunity for public art.
A row of trees is suggested between the childrens play area and the parking areas as a green buffer, and to also provide shade. As this area is well cared for and enjoyed, it appears that retention and modification would be appropriate. Fencing along the south and eastern portion of the compound should be compatible with campus design standards and should also help screen views into the compound.
EWU should act to encourage and partner with these entities and to develop a boulevard leading to the campus. Sometime before 2010 it will probably be necessary to develop additional surface parking to reduce pressure on neighborhood streets.
Enlarged paving areas would be created to resolve path connections and to provide small plaza spaces with the building as a backdrop.

This plan, and specifically the recommendations for improvement projects, can be adjusted to respond to changing circumstances. It provides diverse perspectives and prepares students to be thoughtful competent citizens able to contribute to the common good.
Third, a series of one-on-one meetings were conducted with key Cheney and University individuals to identify potential underlying concerns and issues - - and to identify opportunities for both EWU and the City.
The following discusses the most important findings that evolved during Master Plan development. These spaces, of course, are located farther from academic buildings and may require a seven to ten minute walk.
City staff are amenable to the development of recreational amenities and will work with EWU staff to resolve questions regarding liability, maintenance, and city resident use of facilities. There have been many requests to extend the mall walkways to link outlying portions of the campus to the central area.
A total of 15,300 square feet of space has been added to this formerly inefficient building. The Red Barn is too isolated and is on the wrong side of campus relative to the major traffic access point to act as a central visitor facility where visitors can leave their cars and walk to appropriate destinations. The major crossing points themselves are indistinct which encourages ad hoc crossing (jaywalking) that further confuses circulation and leads to frustration. These improvements are generally independent of each other and can be implemented, over time, as funds become available. The possibility of creating several 40+ person flat floor lecture rooms should be investigated to address an identified need for some additional large classrooms. The bulk of the space affected will likely be in the more recent addition, Williamson Hall.
In addition, the loading dock area between Patterson and Isle Hall should be removed and reconfigured to enhance pedestrian use of this building entry. In addition the idea of expanding and enhancing document storage (primarily maps) should be considered.
Access to this area is proposed via an east-west street, which will also provide access to the proposed softball complex.
This building should be a generous structure with a recommended minimum ground floor to ceiling height of 15 feet. In addition, a small zone of landscape plantings around the foundation of the building creates a distinct space around the schoolhouse. This action will likely lead to a public hearing and then a decision on the request by the City Council.


The path between Patterson and Isle Hall should be improved and formalized with additional tree plantings and the creation of a new path design based on the use of mall materials and design details.
Paving used for vehicle access could then be removed and the landscaped portion of the site restored. However, this parking lot is in a key central location and should be reserved as a site for a future academic building when needed. It is recommended that EWU approach these owners in the near future to determine their desires in regards to these houses. The parking lot design should preserve large trees around the perimeter of the lot to buffer views from surrounding private housing areas. Curb extensions are suggested at curb cuts and access points to off-street lots and loading areas.
An entry node with pull-off space, a limited amount of lawn or meadow grass, and a trail system map should be installed at this location. Plantings, paths, and careful grading to eliminate the need for safety fencing will insure that these water management requirements are satisfied in a way that creates visual enhancement to the important views of this area from Washington Street. It is estimated that an additional 60 parking stalls could be developed in this already impacted area.
A "beacon structure" is proposed at the southeast corner of the free parking lot to guide pedestrians to the path to campus. These plantings will add additional visual interest to the recreational experience of the trails and sports fields. Signage and additional lighting might be added that relate to the temporarily sited pieces. A small area of sand amended turf could be installed to support occasional large outdoor performances, such as concerts and plays.
The mechanical access structure would be preserved and a small building would be built adjacent to and partially around it. The planning for the campus parkway will be a cooperative planning project with the City and the university.
A new entry structure ("gateway") is proposed to flank Washington Street in the vicinity of the Surbeck Services building. In the long term, if parking demand continues to increase, this centrally located site is in an ideal location to construct a parking structure.
Access for well pump replacement would be retained, but no drive or path specific for this purpose would be created.
Chana€™s graduate thesis work was exhibited at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York. Communications in Glendale, California, office space for the Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills and residences in Studio City, La Canada, Mar Vista and Silver Lake. The broad concepts, as described by the goals, will remain a constant framework for guiding the improvement of the campus. Fourth, a space utilization study was undertaken to assess the general quality of existing academic space on campus, and to identify the level of use of existing classrooms and laboratories.
Parking fees are very low, and yet demand for permits is less than the number of spaces already available.
Also, commuters and first time visitor enter campus without entering the City of Cheney or observing the historic portion of campus. Furthermore, these relatively wide streets with sporadic enclosure from building or other vertical elements encourage higher vehicle speeds. As these improvements are made, the campus will continue to evolve and move closer to the vision or the campus described below. The ramp connection to the mall should also be remodeled and upgraded both for ADA compliance and to enhance this feature that is both an entry to the building and a significant element in the mall.
This would result in a map archives space that could be similar to a small library with some common space, as well as other features to preserve and showcase these interesting documents. The first two research buildings to be constructed should be sited adjacent to Washington Street to create street presence and establish an appropriate architectural gateway for the research area. The building scale should provide a transition between the institutional scale of major university structures and nearby single family homes. A safe pedestrian route through the parking lot should be defined with striping, landscape islands, and trees.
The proximity to existing food service and the possibility of satisfying multiple goals are the strongest features of the expansion area near the new food service area. The main path from the mall to Elm Street should be completed in unit pavers based on the mall materials and motifs. Vehicle access for pump removal would be preserved through design of an aisle of appropriate width between trees. The formal path system is proposed to be constructed using a modified version of the mall paving materials and motifs. Since this proposed improvement is within a public right-of-way, approval will need to be obtained from the City before this project can proceed. As EWU's needs for these properties is not imminent, it may be possible to find appropriate approaches that meet owner desires, and will allow EWU to take ownership at a future date.
A system of trails and overlooks could be developed to allow strolling and to lead to benches and view points. This plan did not identify a need between now and 2010 for additional resident parking beyond that shown.
Continuous sidewalks and rows of street trees are proposed along both sides of 11th Street. The main path will then meander south, creating a recreational edge between the campus to the east and the agricultural lands to the west.
A small roofed, but open sided structure containing a campus map and emergency phone is proposed for this location.
This parking lot is proposed to be segregated from stadium parking to the north by a pedestrian walk corridor (see project 42).
These windbreaks will also help to define the agricultural edge of the campus and draw people to interact with the unique landscape of the Palouse. The installation of benches in key areas would also allow people to view the art pieces in a relaxed manner. This lobby is proposed to accommodate an espresso cart, some indoor seating, a perimeter counter, lots of glazing, and roll-up doors.
While the design of this entry structure needs substantial additional thought, it should be of significant size, be constructed of high quality materials, and create a dignified approach to campus.
Fifth, faculty members were asked to comment on the adequacy of classrooms and laboratory space available for their classes. Existing activities, such as food service, dining, and event planning continue to be housed in the building. The existing routing is a missed opportunity to capitalize on the historic district as a strong campus identifier, particularly for first time visitors. These streets, particularly Washington, do not provide strong visual cues to car drivers that they are approaching pedestrian crossings. As additional occupants are identified, the road and utility services can be extended westward from Washington Street to provide for additional sites. The additional open space created from reconfiguring the parking lot should be landscaped with trees and grass or ground covers, and would enhance the pedestrian route.
The opportunity to create an architectural feature that defines an entry point to the PUB, and to add a pedestrian feature at the Elm and 10th intersection are the strongest features of expanding the existing waiting area.
The landscape around this significant building could be improved with foundation plantings and the addition of trees located to frame views to the facades of the structure. Approaches that might be considered include, but are not limited to the following: sale and leaseback, partial charitable contribution and partial sale, charitable contribution and life estate, sale of the land and relocation of the house to another land parcel, property trade.
This trail system should be developed to accommodate ADA access to the maximum extent practical. At the south end of the campus, the main path joins with the circulation system at the Red Barn.
This circulation space could either be fully or partially enclosed but should contain a significant amount of glazing and be well lighted. The building should have deep eaves to allow for outdoor seating and protection during rain.
This would also be an appropriate location for a few short-term parking stalls, provide a campus map, and provide summary information and directions for visitors.
Finally, a series of three “open houses” were conducted to provide a forum for students, neighbors, faculty members, and University staff to review campus planning materials, identify problems, suggest solutions, and to converse with staff and consultants. This may also be a missed opportunity to introduce students to the existing retail core of the City of Cheney. Parking should be provided either to the side or the rear of research campus buildings, and should not be allowed between the street and the building. Additional screening plantings should be added around dumpster enclosures, transformers, and other utility features. The circular and square banding themes would be used to connect pedestrian circulation routes and to acknowledge the entries of the adjacent buildings.
This would improve pedestrian flow across Elm Street at this point and improve views into campus from Elm.
The existing centennial monument should be relocated to the center of this space and could become the base for a commissioned sculpture of an eagle. Trees should be added in groupings to frame views, provide shade, and create spaces within this area.
There are three large parking lots in this general area that are recommended for improvement It may prove cost effective to create common storm water facilities for all three of these as part of one project.
This parking lot should be reserved as a site for a future multi-level parking garage should additional parking for residents be required.
To help improve circulation and access to the theater, an area on the north side of the building is proposed to be enclosed.
As a large underutilized parking area is available at the Red Barn, only a nominal amount of parking need be provided to serve each individual building.
The Woonerf (see project 7) would cross this area and may be a location where a raised crossing should be considered. The bus pullout function will need to be discussed with STA but it may be possible to eliminate this stop given the proximity to the stop at the PUB. The restored city well building would be another possible location to install interpretive signage. It is important to note that this piece should be funded in a manner that will insure the University has control over the content, artist selection, and final execution of the piece. The ground plane should remain in rough meadow grass to reduce the need for maintenance and irrigation. Installation of a large diameter underground pipe may be an appropriate way to store storm water from these three parking facilities. If this facility does become necessary, it should be designed to include ground level pedestrian-oriented uses on the Cedar and 10th Street frontages. The trees will enhance the view of the track and provide a visual cue for pedestrians moving to and from their cars. The enhancements could include paving the path, planting continuous rows of trees, providing lighting, and possibly installing a few benches for people to stop and rest. The enclosed space should include a circulation core of stairs and an elevator, an enclosed atrium space, expansion of the theater lobby, a coatroom, and space for concessions. The proposed roadway section includes a center planted median strip, one traffic lane in each direction, a bicycle lane in each direction, a large planting strip on either side, a multiple-use sidewalk on either side, and a row of trees outside of the walk on either side. The playfield south of the existing tennis courts can be considered for future parking expansion. Signage would be incorporated into these elements in keeping with overall recommendations for campus. Other secondary paths are proposed to connect the large parking lot and PHASE buildings to the trail system. A small plaza is suggested at the east end of the ticket office building; paved with concrete pavers in a pattern and motif that recalls the mall paving. The paving should be concrete unit pavers in patterns and motifs derived from the mall paving system. The center planted median would end before intersections to allow for left turn lanes and stacking space. The Computing Engineering and Sciences Building, located on the east side of Washington, is set for completion in June 2005) The City is also attempting to develop a Tech Park on West 1st to house research and development activities. A centrally located reception desk, as well as self-serve displays and information areas, should be included. Areas disturbed by path construction and non-recreational spaces east of the perimeter path should be planted with native grass seed mixes. Inside the campus area, the boulevard section is proposed to transition to the existing two-way street with parallel parking, bike lanes, planting strips, and sidewalks on both sides. As this development would help integrate the City and the Campus, and enhance the economic vitality of downtown, the EWU staff should cooperate with the City as practical. The historic district materials and details as well as scored concrete minor paths would interface with the mall paving at the edges of the main path.
In a few locations along the paths, it may be appropriate to plant areas with woody native plants to augment wildlife habitat, reinforce a sense of the unique landscapes of the region, and create visual interest for trail users. The ticket building should be repaired as necessary and improved with new paint and signage. This will allow for the development of an accessible route from the parking area to the lobby level of the theater.
This transition is proposed to occur at the point where the new campus entry (see project 64) is proposed. A separate study of transition landscapes related to the historic district was prepared and should be referenced for additional information about this project.
A limited signage system could be installed to interpret native vegetation and other features. It may also be appropriate to develop a "marquee" over the front entrance to the theater to enliven the space and provide a covered area for use before events and during intermission.The southern outdoor space, between the theater and music buildings, should be improved with additional trees, and possibly shrub plantings. It may be desirable to locate small historic displays, artifacts, and artwork on the ground floor to further enhance the formal and grand character of the Visitor Center. The walkway is proposed to consist of scored concrete paving and be flanked with rows of trees and shrubs, and ground cover plantings. There may also be an opportunity to create a small informal "stage" or focal area for casual performances. The framework of this garden area would be the path intersection and the circular motifs established by the mall design. The intersection of this walkway with Washington Street is a potential location for installation of a pedestrian directional "pylon." Campus wide signage is addressed in greater detail in a separate study.
For visitors arriving from downtown Cheney, this entry statement will say much about Eastern Washington University. The sign design should carefully address the juxtaposition of the contemporary mall extension within the framework of the historic district.
