Purpose

The Campus Planning Committee (CPC) is established by the President as an advisory group that represents the NMSU campus community to review proposed projects that impact the visual, physical appearance of the campus.

The CPC is also NMSU’s heritage preservation (historic preservation) committee and reviews all issues related to historic preservation and implementation of the Heritage Preservation Plan.

The CPC also hears appeals to the Uniform Navigation Signage, NMSU Wayfinding and Signage policy (12.60).

For purposes of CPC actions taken under this charge, the term “review” refers to presentation and discussion of items that do not require a vote. The term “approve” is used in relation to actions requiring a vote; these items are subsequently forwarded to the president in the form of a recommendation.

For clarification, this review should be for all NMSU projects within the triangle of I25 / I10 and University Avenue, including ADI and Arrowhead projects and would not apply to ADI projects outside the triangle, although it is requested that the University Architect review any proposed design.

The CPC makes recommendations to the Chancellor/President, and while this formalizes the process a little, final approval is unchanged and still resides with the Chancellor/President.

Authority

Established by the Board of Regents and included in Board Policy.
