Dr. Traci Bliss called the meeting to order and informed the group she had met with Mrs. Connie Bowen to
obtain her opinion and perspective on the issue of a Faculty Club. Dr. Bliss asked for council input. The group

The University Club exists to support the ISU community. The

change the name of the council to the Campus Planning Council. Moved by Tony Martin and seconded by Darla

Location of Campus Flagpole
Traci Bliss continued the meeting with the issue of the flagpole. A short discussion followed. Moved by Tony
Martin and seconded by Ernie Naftzger to move the flagpole to the location at the end of the Administration
Building Parking lot. Discussion continued with the following points being brought out by the group. Tony
Martin brought out the display would be very appealing from the traffic situation on both 8th Street and Martin
Luther King Parkway. Darrell mentioned that Scott Campbell was working on the feasibility of a fountain and
benches at this site. Question was called and the motion passed unanimously.
Energy Conservation and Efficiency Planning
Darrell Buffaloe handed out a proposal from the Physical Plant for measures being used currently and proposed
measures to help with energy conservation and to recommend possible ways for more efficient operation of the
campus. A discussion followed. Council members were interested in the development of incentive systems to
conserve energy on campus. Darrell Buffaloe will bring recommendations to the next meeting, January 30, 2001.
Approval of Minutes
Dr. Priscilla Reis mentioned the following should be added to the September 28, 2000 minutes. Darin Dehle
asked the committee to establish to get faculty involvement in the internal configuration of the of the Rendezvous
Building, Moved by Ernie Naftzger and seconded by Sherri Dienstfrey to accept this addition to the minutes.
November 14, 2000 Minutes
Priscilla Reis asked that the part on the facility name designation portion of the November 14 minutes which
included her as a member of the name designation committee be deleted as she is not a member. The general
consensus was to delete this from the minutes Priscilla Reis brought out that the Council did not have the
authority to change the by-laws in a single meeting. Further, given that a committee was under review by the
Faculty Senate, it may be more appropriate to make recommendations to Faculty Senate, then change the by-laws
after the report is received from the ad hoc committee performing the review. Moved by Tony Martin and
seconded by Ernie Naftzger to change the minutes to read as recommendations to be forwarded to the Faculty
Senate. Motion passed unanimously. The meeting adjourned at 5:30 p.m. with the next meeting schedule for
January 30, 2000 at 4:00 p.m. in the College of Education Dean’s Conference Room.
