2004 to 2015

2004 to 2015

2004 marked the development of the Campus Master Plan (CMP), and its adoption by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents. It is a hierarchical, comprehensive plan to bring the physical environment into alignment with the mission of the university through growth management and improved quality of the physical environment.

Subsequent actions established the Council for the Built Environment (CBE) to advise the university president on all matters relating to the development of the physical environment, maintenance of buildings, and the assignments of existing spaces. The CBE is co-chaired by the Provost and the Vice President for Finance and Operations. Four sub-councils report to the CBE: Design Review sub-council, Facilities Utilization and Planning sub-council, Technical Review sub-council and Maintenance Review sub-council.

This period represents the integration of campus planning and development utilizing fundamental principles and components as described in the 2004 Campus Master Plan. The strategic recommendations of the CMP include: extend the existing civic and landscape structure of the historic core through to west campus; unite east and west into one campus by building development along the central axis of the campus; increase the building density of mid and west campus; create new quadrangles in the west part of campus; redevelop Wellborn Road as a tree-tined boulevard; develop two underpasses under Wellborn Road and the railroad; redevelop University Drive as a safe, pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined boulevard; replace surface parking with green spaces, buildings, and garages, and limit private vehicles to the perimeter of campus; and improve the quality of campus architecture and landscape.
