Presentation Transcript

In 2010, the debt service on the HEC was paid off (approx $11 per student). It was continued for an extra year, 2011-12 to fund a study on recreational needs.

  • This study recommended a renovation to the Allen Center to expand recreational offerings on campus.
  • Legislation came to SGA in spring 2012 to referenda the students that spring if the building should be built.
  • Cost per student would have been:$60 year one; $120 year two; $197 year three

for a 20 year bond.

  • This legislation was tabled indefinitely by a unanimous vote.
why additional study
Why additional study?
  • Cost to students was significant when taking into account factors such as differential tuition, tuition increase, etc.
  • Delzell as a facility is inadequate in meeting students needs (student health services, counseling services, child care services)
    • State would not address the issue until 2023-2025
  • In an attempt to find a solution that meets students health, wellness, and recreational needs in a fiscally responsible manner, the study was expanded, by unanimous vote in Spring 2012.
  • This study expansion builds off the recreational needs study to assess the viability of a total wellness center on the Allen site.

2011-2012: Recreational needs study phase I

  • Spring 2012: SGA Vote, commissioning of phase II
  • Fall 2012-Spring 2013: Study ongoing with periodic meetings with architects, University Administration, SGA representatives, UW System Representatives, Delzell Hall representatives, and University Recreational Sports (URS)
  • Fall 2013: Study completed, findings presented to University.
  • Spring 2014: Options submitted to students for referenda vote
  • 2015: Approval by state in biennial budget
  • 2016: Construction begins (estimated 18-24 months construction)
common faq s

Does phase II invalidate the phase I?

    • No. It builds off of what is already finished and paid for.
  • Do studies expire?
    • Yes, after 3 years. Phase II ensures that the initial phase I will not expire.
  • Who are the architects?
    • The design firm, Kahler-Slater. They are the same firm, and the same architect who did the first study.
    • One of Kahler-Slater’s specialties is university health, wellness and recreational buildings.
  • Why is the first study not being sent to the students as referenda now?
    • A referenda is binding, and would invalidate the study currently in process.
    • At this point, no building (either just phase I or the expanded phase II) can be built until 2016, due to the state biennial budget process.
  • How will this new building be paid for?
    • The primary funding source will be segregated fees, though there is a chance for additional funding from the state.
Common FAQ’s
common faq s1

How is the expanded study paid for?

    • Through a Student Health Services budget savings
  • Will the expanded recreational facility mean free strength and cardio center memberships?
    • It would still be a charge to students through segregated fees, however there will not be an additional user fee.
  • Will this expanded building option be a greater expense to the students?
    • That question cannot be answered until the architects submit their proposal, however they have been instructed to offer the students a low, medium, and high cost option.
  • Does it have to be the Allen center site?
    • That site is not set in stone, however was determined as the best possible site for the phase I study. The architects may propose an additional site, we will have to wait until their recommendation.
