Board of Commissioners Review of Draft Master Facility Plan.


John McLean of Blue Room Architecture provided an overview of the draft Master Facility Plan. He noted that this is only a draft version and that he was presenting options so he could get a sense of whether or not he is going in the right direction for what the Board is hoping to accomplish. He noted that his intent is for the Master Facility Plan to line up and blend well with Jody Carona's data report. He explained that when it is finished the Master Facility Plan document can be used for fund raising, loan applications, etc. He explained the process of evaluating the different options, noting that they use a four step approach:
1. Economic - Cost
2. Risk - All Associated
3. Function - Why do? or not do?
4. Summary - Opinion of why? or why not?


There was some discussion regarding the different options that could be considered in the Master Facility Planning process, focusing on development of the North side of the campus, focusing on development of the South side of the campus, as well as variations of remodeling the old acute care wing. Different options for phasing in projects including an MRI and relocation ofPT, were also discussed. The Board noted that they would like to take some time to review the information presented and may have additional questions or suggestions.


There being no further business to come before the Board of Commissioners, Commissioner Carver moved that the meeting be adjourned at 1:17 p.m. Commissioner Daniel seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.
