    advantages and disadvantages associated with either concept Q Are these separate or adjacent A It is advisable for the Fitness Center to have adjacencies to other Recreation related spaces IE Multi purpose rooms running track locker rooms etc This decision whether these facilities are separate or adjacent has not yet been made Q Aren t we going to build a pool A A pool is not a part of this formal first step in design and construction The recently completed Master Plan which has a 20 year scope notes it as a possible second step The design of the new Falcon Center is to take into consideration the possibility of one being added in the future The current bonding authority of 63M for step one simply does not include enough additional funding to support the construction of a pool at this time Q Why are Karges and Nelson being demolished A Karges Center constructed in 1959 and the Nelson Building constructed in 1963 are functionally obsolete and in poor overall condition Retrofitting these two buildings for other university purposes is not economically feasible Q Why didn t you consider moving Ramer Field closer to the new building to share restrooms and locker rooms A The university did consider relocating Ramer Field closer to new building areas however the timing and cost of such a move made that option very problematic Q Will Hunt Arena and the Knowles Center be remodeled as well A Hunt Arena will receive new bleacher seating plus the concessions area and offices will be remodeled The locker office area on the east side of Knowles will also be remodeled Q Are you going to make improvements to existing facilities A Yes several notable improvements will be made both to the interior and exterior facilities Knowles will receive several improvements that will generally facilitate better traffic flow and use of the facility Hunt will likely see major improvements to the HVAC and bleacher systems Form finish and function should generally be improved in all of the facilities More specific information will be available as initial concepts are brought forward in the design process Q Will Knowles have spectator seating A It has been an issue since the facility was constructed in 1986 that additional space is desirable to effectively circulate the events hosted in the facility The design team will look at cost effective ways to improve circulation and provide additional space for placing additional seating solutions on the outside of the track circumference during events Q What will happen with the climbing wall Is it being replaced A Much discussion has been had with regard to the existing climbing wall at Knowles Center Most constituents agree that it would be devastating to demolish the existing natural limestone wall located at the north end of the Knowles Center It is also very apparent that climbing walls have evolved into very dynamic creations over the past quarter century The decision to construct a new wall has not been
