I. ACTION ITEMS

A. ARCHITECT SELECTION, CARR'S HILL ARTS PRECINCT -- To support the goal of enhancing the visual and performing arts, the University has initiated a feasibility study for the development of an Arts Precinct on Carr's Hill. The study will establish programs for the Bayly Museum, the McIntire Department of Art, the Department of Music, and the Department of Drama, and will explore strategies for accommodating the programs in appropriately configured spaces through renovations, additions, and new facilities. The Architect Selection Committee recently completed its selection process and ranked the firm of Dagit.Saylor Architects of Pennsylvania, as its first choice.

B. ARCHITECT SELECTION, GROUNDSWALK -- To support the development of a "Groundswalk" linking the University's precincts: the Health Sciences Center, North Grounds, Central Grounds, and West Grounds, the University recommends that Ayers Saint Gross, the architects for the master plan update, develop schematic plans and cost estimates.

C. ARCHITECT SELECTION, MEDICAL CENTER TERM CONTRACT -- Term contracts are used for the engagement of architectural and engineering firms to provide investigations, cost estimates, designs and related services for small capital construction projects. Most projects completed under term contracts are renovations. Since the cost of a term project can exceed $500,000, Board approval of the architect selection is required. The first project to be completed under this contract is the renovation of clinical spaces for the Departments of Diagnostic Radiology and Radiation Oncology. The Architect Selection Committee recently completed its selection process and ranked the firm of Tobey+Davis of Reston, Virginia as its number one choice.

II. REPORTS BY THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

A. VICE PRESIDENT'S REMARKS - Ms. Capone will discuss plans for the demolition of Miller Hall in connection with development of the Special Collections Library.
