Dates of existence



The Department of Campus Planning, the forerunner of the Department of Facilities Planning and Management, was responsible for the planning and implementation of the physical environment of York University. The department had three major responsibilities. The first was the development of the Master Plan, which involved the selection of architects, liaison with municipal authorities for the provision of services to the campus, and co-operation with various building and planning committees on campus, including the Board of Governors Property and Building Committee and the Campus Planning Advisory Committee. The second was to provide background information to planners, architects and consultants with regard to space allocation, design, and services for the several campus buildings and facilities, both on the Glendon and main campuses. Finally, the department had to oversee the implementation of the Master Plan, and this work involved control over costs and schedules; work with outside consultants and project committees within the university; and liaison with the Department of Physical Plant. The department was renamed Facilities Planning and Management in 1980.
