Plan: less parking, more dorms

A different campus: Master plan would increase
housing, decrease parking and create green ways

By Tracy Kershaw


Imagine cash rewards

surrounding the library and
green ways traversing

By 2020. it could be a re-

Increasing housing. de-

creasing the demand for
parking and creating green
ways are among the aims of
a master plan that would
give the campus a facelift by
the year 2020.

The plan‘s masterminds

architects and planners
from Ayers. Saint. Gross. a
firm based in Baltimore.
Md. are on campus this

week presenting the plan to
faculty. staff. students and

The master plan. which
the Board of Trustees will
vote upon in October or No-
vember. would create several
centers of activity on cam-
pus. each bringing housing.
academics and student recre-
ation closer together:

The consultants based
the plan on three principles:
creating academic communi-
ties. creating a sustainable

growth pattern and creating
connections to the city.

They are. involved with
the college-town project.
which would create a retail
corridor on South Limestone
and a residential corridor on
Martin Luther King Boule-
vard, linking UK and down-
town Lexington. The college-
town plan fits into the mas-
ter plan. said Ayers. Saint,
Gross associate Mike Glaros.

The master plan ac«
counts for a projected 39 per

cent increase in campus pop-
ulation by 2020. Glaros said.

Increasing housing is a
priority. Glaros said.

New housing would be
spread across campus —
with possible sites ranging
from replacing Greg Page
Apartments with higher den-
sity. longerlasting campus
housing and to building
dorms on current parking
lots at Memorial Coliseum
and behind the Funkhouser

Building. See PLAN 3


Students are invited to hear a
presentation of the proposed

campus master plan; 3 pm.
today at Worsham Theater in

the Student Center.

The Board of Tmstees will view
the plan, which would be im-
plemented over the next 20
years. at its October or
November meeting.




Rhonda Hale, an undeclared freshman from Washington County, changes her registration to Fayette County on Wednesday afternoon
at a table registration booth set up by Campus Progressive Coalition. Oct. 7 is the last day to register to vote to be eligible for the
November election. "Students just don't understand how important it Is [to votel." Hale said.

Sale: Group rallies at Young for city ownership

B_y_ Steve _lv_ey

Political candidates and community members con-
vened Wednesday night at the William T. Young Library
auditorium to show support for a government purchase of
Kentucky American Water Company and oppose a sale to
RWE. a German utilities conglomerate.

Brian Privett of Lexington Greens. a group formed to
support local environmental and social justice issues. or-
ganized the meeting.

“(The sale of Kentucky American Water Company) is
the biggest issue in this election." he said. “And we believe
the community can be better served by local ownership."

Mayoral candidate Teresa Isaac supports city owner-
ship; candidate Scott Crosbie does not.

Those who support private ownership argue profitdri-
ven companies are more likely to provide a better service
and government monopolies are often inefficient.

Privett said he hoped the meeting would allow voters
to make a more educated choice on election day. Isaac
spoke at the meeting.

“We believe local ownership is the best choice. and we
want to inform voters on which candidates share our
view." he said.

Former Gov. Ned Breathitt. also a UK trustee, spoke
on behalf of Bluegrass FLOW.

Breathitt said he saw Kentucky Utilities employees
lose their jobs after KU was bought out by a German con-

“(Foreign utility companies) are trying to gobble up
every utility they can so they can control the economics
and politics of the world.“ he said.

Breathitt said foreign owners would have to pay stock
dividends to share holders. which could result in in-
creased rates, deferment of maintenance and downsizing.

“We‘re not going to be asleep at the switch this time
and we're going to fight for the people of Kentucky.“ he

Foster Ockerman. attorney for Bluegrass FLOW.
addressed legal issues of local government ownership.

“It‘s not a takeover.“ he said. “The Lexington Fayette
Urban County Government will pay fair market price."

“It makes no sense to subject our water in Lexington
to the whims of German tax laws," he said.


Man calls dorm home for eight years

Old guy: Lexmark employee Brandon Skaggs, 27,

Though Skaggs is a 27»
year-old engineering alum-
nus from UK. he has not es-
caped dorm life .., but has no

“Hopefully the students
see me as an older brother

he said.

Skaggs works at Lex
mark and resides in the
dorm as a Resident Engineer
It‘s his eighth year in the co—
ed dorm. Though he lived

there as a student. he now
takes the role of supplemen-
tal staff to the resident advis-
ers. Skaggs helps plan activi-
ties and programs for the en-
gineering students and is
also a fixture in tutoring ses-
sions on Monday nights.

The environment in this
case is one without parties.
without alcohol and without
late-night visits from the op-
posite sex. It's a world usual-
ly occupied by the 18-20 year-
olds that reside in the dorms.
but Skaggs shrugs off the

“I've lived on campus for
years." he said. “I'm used to
the environment.“

Skaggs resides in a hall

immaculate suite is complete
with a living area. kitchen

closet and a bedroom.

He keeps the room basic.
with a TV. comfy couch. com-
puter. and robust wooden
table and chairs. in case stu-
dents ever get the urge to
swing by. The place main-
tains a dorm smell and is
complemented by Skaggs‘
never-been-played mandolin.

“I have yet to take a les-
son to learn to play it." Skag-
gs said with a chuckle.

With most dorm rooms
on campus having to be
shared by at least two people

dorm suite for its space and
luxury. He admits most peo-

ple don't get this opportunity

“Residence halls can‘t
compete with apartments."
Skaggs said. “but it helps
moms to know we make an
effort to help out folks.“

Skaggs first moved into
the dorm in August 1993 to
do an engineering coop.

“I had a goal to stay
there [in the dorms) because
it's just easier." Skaggs said.
“When I moved off campus
in May 1999. I never thought
I‘d be back."

The plan to return to
South Campus was partly

NYPD asks easier surveillance

NEW YORK (‘iting a climate altered
by terrorist threats. the New York Police
Department asked a court to sharply curtail
the powers of a panel that oversees the de-
partment's surveillance of political groups.
The request. filed Wednesday in federal
court in Manhattan. would eliminate many
of the panel's powers to monitor and regu~
late surveillance of domestic activists. The
department now must seek permission
from the three-member authority to use un-
dercover officers to investigate any political
group believed to be involved iii planning a
crime. The authority. which consists of two
deputy police commissioners and a civilian
appointee. mttst grant permission for the
NYPD to conduct such investigations for
more than :l0 days, Police investigators are
also restricted from gathering all but the
most basic information about planned polit
ical demonstrations. Those restrictions
would be eliminated under the depart»
ment‘s request. David (‘ohen. the NYPD's
deptity con‘iniissioner for intelligence.
wrote in the court filing that terrorists have
used the First .-\mendnient protections of'
mosques and Islamic institutes to hide their
activities. The authority's guidelines have
become a grave impediment to the NYPD's
thorough investigation of such groups. he
wrote. Mohammad Sherwani. director of

overzealous about it. They have enough att-

the proper channels. We have to trust those
