Board = December 13-14, 1966

The Committee on Buildings and Grounds reported that for several
years a study of a campus plan to show the outermost limits for Georgia
State College has been in process; that recent adjustments have been com-
pleted as a result of obtaining the Atlantic Company property; that the
approval of the Master Campus Plan will facilitate a rapid decision in
final clearance of urban renewal properties now in process with the
Atlanta Housing Authority; and that this plan would provide for ultimate
expansion of the campus to include approximately 60 acres,

The Committee reported further that in President Langdale's
recommendation for approval of the proposed Master Campus Plan for Georgia
State College, he pointed out certain items which are necessary to satisfy
the Urban Renewal Policy Committee on the block of property bounded by
Piedmont Avenue, Gilmer Street, and Decatur Street.

Mr. André Steiner of the architectural firm of Robert and Company
presented the preliminary outline of the amended campus plan for the future
development of Georgia State College which would provide the necessary
physical facilities for this fast growing institution. He was assisted by
President Noah Langdale, Jr., in this presentation, and by Mr. V. V. Lavroff,
Comptroller of the College.

Following a discussion of the Master Campus Plan as outlined and
of the conditions to be met in satisfying the requirements of the Department
of Planning of the City of Atlanta, upon recommendation by Chancellor George
L. Simpson, Jr., and the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, with motion
properly made, variously seconded, and unanimously adopted, it was
