special, around the Administra-
tion and Student Activities Build-
ings and the Union.
Another integral feature of Cen-
tral Campus is housing, the plan
says, ranging from massive dor-
mitories to apartments. The shop-
ping and service areas at the
perimeter of Central Campus
should, also be given considera-
tion in planning.-/
"The implications here are that
in order fo rthe University to
allow for an indeterminate de-
gree of expansion with an increas-
ed measure of order, clarity and
efficiency, the pattern of a singu-
lar physical and organizational
focus, around which occurs all re-
lated professional schools and in
turn around which occurs all
housing, must be reconsidered.
"The brightest prospect for con-
tinued expansion may lie in the
University's ability to organize and
physically relate several academic
centers, each with its own identity
towards more integrated and more
intimate living-learning environ-
ments," the plan declares..
Traffic Parking
A third factor is traffic and
parking. The plan notes that the
same street patterns serve the
Central Business District, Univer-
sity campuses, crosstown traffic
and parking needs.
/The plan sees the need for a
series of rings, spreading out from
the CBD-campus area, around the
city so that traffic could flow
more freely and sort itself out,
better for various destiliations.
The Central Campus ring is
composed of Hill, Packard, Divi-
sion and Huron Streets and Forest
Ave.
Parking System
The plan also says that the
University is proceeding with a
sound parking system and that
future expansion could effectively
meet increased denmands upon it.
Much of the University's parking
facilities are located on the Cen-
tral Campus outer perimeter,
where it should be, the plan in-
dicates.
"The most dominant mark" of
the future Central Campus would
be "three major academic avenue"
walkways, the plan says. They
would be "broadly conceived walk-
ways for students and faculty to
which all functions would relate."
The first one would be a north-
west-southeast. diagonal running
from the Rackham Bldg. mall to
the South University St. shop-
ping area.

A campus green belt would ex-
tend through the Central Campus,
across Palmer Field and the Madi-
son Heights parkway to the Ar-
boretum. The plan envisions pe-
destrian bridges across the Huron
River providing access to recrea-
tional facilities.
Ring Road
Major traffic would flow along
the Forest-Huron-Division-Pack-
ard-Hill ring road. Campus en-
trances, the plan continues, would
be made prominent by "taste-
fully designed" arrangements of
lawn, walkway and shade areas.
"Organizationally, the center of
campus would remain liberal arts-
and library-oriented with the out-
er edges developing as a series of
academic units of various types
and combination," the plan says.
The walkways would serve as
the unifying element as the Cen-
tral Campus expands beyond its
present bounds.
'Points of Extension'
The plan recommends four
"points of extension" suitable for
further study:
1) A southern extension of the
northeast- southwest walkway past
the State-Hill-Packard Streets
husiness area to the northeast edge
of the athletic campus;
2) An eastern extension of the
east-west walkway to Wilmot St;
3) A western extension of the
School area on Packard and Divi-
east-west walkway to the Perry
sion Streets; and
4) A northern extension of the
northwest - southwest walkway
north of the Rackham Bldg.
Narrow End
"Such zones of extension," the
plan continues, "would be narrow
and knitted to the community
through housing and service fa-
cilities. The scale of architectural
deminsion would be small. The
size of bnildings would be intimate
!and residential in character."
The plan makes a series of rec-
ommendations designed to move
today's Central Campus towards
the one envisioned for tomorrow.
To aid traffic flow around Cen-
tral Campus, the plan calls for
University support of the CBD

WALKWAYS--Three major walkways will connect the various sub-units of ' the Central Campus.
These "academic avenues" will lead from Division to Wilmot Streets, from the Medical Center to
the Packard-State Streets interection. The paths will link the off-campus shopping and service
areas, housing and the various academic sub-units such as the library complex.

N. to S. University Streets as a
pedestrian walkway, the plan de-
clares.
Open space should also be pro-
tected, the plan asserts. The space
in front of Angell Hall and on N.
University St. should be main-
tained. It should be extended to
reach the Hill and Medical Center
forming a "crescent of continuous
campus 'green'" from State St. to
the Medical Center. Future plan-
ning should consider open space,
the plan declares.
In terms of general policy, the
plan recommends that Central
Campus be developed in a coher-
ent, total framework and that this
framework, based on the walk-
ways and subareas, be considered
in the planning of any single
building.
Continuing expansion must as-
sure a continuing single image of
the University, maintain the
beauty and vitality of the cam-
pus area and assure smooth traf-
fic flow for the entire University
community, the plan declares.
To carry out the planned goals
it is necessary that the University
organizationally adjust to a multi-
plicity of smaller campus areas,
the plan warns.
Housing and academic functions
must "be considered as a concep-
tual totality towards more com-
plete, more intimate and more
effective living-learning environ-,
ments," the plan says.
The plan declares that it is
essential that the Ann Arbor com-
munity participate with the Uni-
versity to maintain a proper and
fruitful relationship as both
cliange.

The detail studies were done by
Johnson, Johnson & Roy, an Ann

"Guide to Action" system of "pen-
etrator routes" for the city- par-
ticularly for the Fuller-Geddes
Roads portion.
Intersections
The plan seeks special attention
for the Fuller Rd. and Huron St.
intersections of Glen St., Forest'
and Huron Streets intersection,
Forest St. and Geddes Rd. inter-
sections of Washtenaw Ave.,
Washtenaw Ave. and South Uni-
versity St. intersection, the 4ill-
Packard-State Streets intersection'
and the Packard-Division-E. Madi-
son Streets intersection.
It also asks for safer street
crossinjg at Forest and Huron
Streets, North University and
Forest Streets' and Hill and State
Streets.
The plan encourages the con-
struction of parking structures
around the ring road, seeing the
greatest need for a new one in
the Hill Aud. area.

It points out future campus
focal points, some now existing,
but none highlighted as focal
points:
1) The area betweeA Hill Aud.,
the League and Rackham Bldg.;
2) The area north of the Mu-
seums Bldg. in the vicinity of
3) The area near the triangular
Geddes Rd.-Forest St.-Washtenaw
Ave. intersection;
Monroe Area
4) The area at the intersection
of Monroe and Tappan Streets;
5) The area between the Stu-
dent Activities Bldg. and the Un-
ion; and
6) The area between the Under-
graduate Library and the Physics-
Astronomy Bldg..
The plan proposes that these
six area be kept as free from
traffic as possible by shifting
streets to pedestrian ways or con-
trolled access streets. Washtenaw
Ave. between N. University and

Forest Streets, Washington St.
between Thayer and Forest Streets,
Monroe between State and Forest
Streets and E. University St. north
of S. University St. would be ef-
fected.
One Architect
In each of the six areas develop-
ment would be advanced by giv-
ing greater design responsibility
to one architect, the plan says.,
To promote the development of
the walkways, the plan suggests
that they be designated "academic
avenues" by which students and
faculty could reach virtually every
University facility.
These routes should be allowed
to ' interconnect the six focal
points. More flexible ground floor
building concepts are needed to
accommodate movement through
and around "structures, the plan
says.

SUB-CAMPUSES-Central Campus, the plan finds, is divided i
five sub-units. The major Ane is the central "quad" including
Diag. Five other units ring it, specializing in administrat
entertainment and three academic areas--life science, phys
science and law.

East-West
The second would be an east-
west route from Church to
Thompson Streets.
The third would be a northeast-
southwest diagonal from the Med-
ical Center to the intersection of
Hill and Packard Streets.
These. walkways would link up
the five subcampuses by passing
through the center of each and
the central "quad." Each of the
five areas, now in a inchoate state,
"would be developed as a campus
focus around which occur build-
ings or building complexes of var-
ious function," the plan says.
Distribute Facilities
Special facilities, such as thea-
ters, museums, exhibition halls,
libraries, faculty club, shopping
and student activities would be
distributed along the major walk-
ways."'
dousing would occur at the ends
of the walkways as well as being
part of some of the academic com-
plexes, as proposed, for example,
in the small residential college
units of the literary college.
Plazas, fountains and sitting
areas would be an integral feature
of the walkways. Where the walk-
way crosses busy streets, such as
Forest and North University
Streets and Forest and Huron
Streets, overpasses would be built.
Well Lighted
The walkways would be gen-
erally broad and well-lighted at
night.

MEDICAL CENTER-A detailed plan for the Medical Center preceeded the Central Campus plan
and is integrated within. Areas are divided into medical teaching on the west, patient care in the
center and research on the east and outer parts of the center. Eventually, the major entrance
to the center will be shifted from the Hill to the Huron River valley between it and North Campus.
