The agenda for this meeting included updates from our chief safety officer, campus sustainability initiatives, mobility hubs as discussed in the October meeting, and design and construction projects currently underway on campus. Also discussed was the proposed Harbor Bay development project.

Former Director of  Community Relations Rick Reese was also recognized at the beginning of the meeting. Reese recently passed away at the age of 79 in his home in Montana. An article in the Salt Lake Tribune described his life as one spent as an environmental activist, outdoor educator and alpinist who was instrumental in the creation and preservation of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, among many other accomplishments. He set the bar for community relations and his impact will live on at the U. His obituary can be found here.
