REGENTS
FromPage 1
George Granger Brown Memo-
rial Laboratories - which
will house the Department of
Mechanical Engineering on
North Campus - and renova-
tions to the Charles T. Munger
Residences in the Lawyers Club,
the John P. Cook Building and
the Trauma Burn Center at the
University Hospital.
The addition to G. G. Brown is
intended to support more inter-
disciplinary efforts between
the Department of Mechanical
Engineering and other Univer-
sity departments, as well as add
faculty and graduate student
office space, according to Slot-
tow's communication to the
regents.
Updating the infrastructure of
the Lawyers Club will renovate
92,000 square feet of residence
hall space and 67,000 square feet
in the club wing. The renova-
CONSTRUCTION -
From Page 1
"They do little to alleviate the
stress (from the construction),"
Ramlawi said. "They have done
very little to make sure small
businesses stay in business.
You're kind of left on your own.
The level of assistance they've
offered ... is almost insulting."
Ramlawi said he thinks the
project was not the best use of
city funds.
"For $50 million, we could be
doing a lot more for our city," he
said.
Still, Ramlawi said he is
grateful for Jerusalem Garden's
"strong following," and without
its loyal costumers, the restau-
rant may have had to close up
the shop. Ramlawi added that he
thinks the biggest challenges as
a result of the construction are
in the past, "but it has not been a
pleasant trip."
Pat Podges, vice president of
Southeastern Michigan opera-
tions for Christman Company,

tion includes the installation of
air conditioning and highspeed
Internet as well as heating and
plumbing improvements, accord-
ing to the communication.
The plans also include
increasing energy efficiency by
30 percent. Funding for the proj-
ect will come from a $20 million
gift as well as other investment
returns and funds from the Law-
yers Club.
The renovations proposed to
the Trauma Burn Center are the
first major updates since 1986
when the unit was built, Slottow
and Executive Vice President for
Medical Affairs Ora Pescovitz
wrote in a communication to the
regents. The changes include
upgrading treatment rooms and
lighting, as well as building a
physical therapy room and an
occupational therapy room.
"Since then the delivery of
medicine has changed, and
now the physical constraints-of
the unit reduce staff efficiency
and effectiveness," Slottow and
the construction company for
the project, acknowledged that
the construction is causing prob-
lems for local businesses, and the
company is highly sympathetic
to those affected.
"We understand that this
has been a disruptive process,"
Podges said.
According to Podges, the con-
struction should be finished by
the end of this coming spring,
though much of the progress
depends on the weather.
"(We) work as quickly and as
diligently as we can," Podges
said. "We certainly appreciate
their patience."
Like Ramwali, Lenore Ojib-
way, a hostess at Seva - a veg-
etarian restaurant around the
corner from the construction on
East Liberty Street - said the
long duration of the construction
is concerning.
"The costumers don't com-
plain about it, but it was supposed
to be done a year ago, and it's
frustrating," said Ojibway, add-
ing that the construction hasn't
largely impactedbusiness at Seva.

Pescovitz wrote. "The unit will
undergo renovations to improve
staff efficiency and create a more
healing environment for patients
and families."
REGENTS TO VOTE ON
MSA NAME CHANGE
The Michigan Student Assem-
bly announced at the end of last
month that it will change its
name to the Central StudentGov-
ernment starting next semester.
However, the name switch is
pending regents approval this
Thursday.
MSA President DeAndree
Watson said in an interview last
month that the change is intend-
ed to reflect the recently revised
structure of the governing body.
"(It will) help students bet-
ter understand who we are and
the role we serve on campus," he
added.
This is the first name change
for the student government
since 1976.
Herb David, owner of Herb
David Guitar Studio at 302 East
Liberty St., expressed frustra-
tion with the progress of the
construction and said it has neg-
atively affected his guitar repair
and retail shop.
"Business before this was
great ..." David said. "Business is
down (now) 45 to 50 percent"
David acknowledged that
the goal of the future parking
structure is to "create a vibrant
downtown community," but
said the construction is a major
hassle that has kept costumers
away.
The famous guitar shop, which
has catered to renowned musi-
cians such as Bob Dylan and John
Lennon, has been located on East
Liberty Street for more than 50
years. David said he hopes the
store can continue operating at its
current location, but the recent
construction and troubled econ-
omy have made it difficult for his
small business to do so.
"We've had to reduce our
staff," he said. "It's a really bad
situation."
