Campbell asked the committee members to review the master plan and projects on the physical plant web site. He would like to get feedback from the committee thru the web. Then he would monitor the comments and post only those items of value to the whole campus. He will use links so persons can get as detailed on each project and they would like. He stated would rather the committee use the web to get information, and then use the committee meeting times to discuss guidelines and make recommendations.
