Site Work announcement on MyFAU

Innovation Village Sitework to Start Soon

The installation of select infrastructure and site clearing for the
Innovation Village project will be initiated during this final quarter
of 2009. All of the work will be outside the limits of the existing
conservation area (also called the preserve). This work is being
completed in accordance with the specifications prepared by our
environmental engineering consultants and has been reviewed with the
University conservation committee and approved by the President. For
more information, contact Azita Dashtaki at [email protected] or Tom
Donaudy at [email protected]



They've marked off certain areas of the Preserve off where the stadium is going to be and then the area between the new parking lot and the long runway. The fact that they're announcing this and doing the sitework… says to me it's a go.  

P.S. I don't respond to guest posts. All guests are encouraged to register with the site.

At least something is happening, after all it takes money and contracts being signed to start any project. Good news!

Did someone contact Azita for more info?

Re: Site Work announcement on MyFAU

That "preserve" is crap.  They should do what they were planning on doing, buy the much less disturbed piece of land to the north of Spanish River Blvd and plow the current preserve under.  The only thing of concern in there are the gopher tortoises and we can move those wherever we want.  The rest is overgrown, disturbed secondary growth that has absolutely no resemblance to a natural habitat.

Re: Site Work announcement on MyFAU

Oh, well apparently we're going to be giving up a piece of land on the north side of Spanish River (right about where Airport Road cuts underneath the overpass) to Boca so they can build a fucking FPL station there. They need student apartments there. Someone who interned for the city told me that the former mayor (Abrams) wanted the north side of Spanish River to be office buildings once the I95 interchange goes up. If FAU doesn't grow a spine and tell Boca to stop building bull**** all around our campus, we're going to be an isolated afterthought in Boca Raton instead of a "college area."
