The Committee is concerned with policy matters affecting the development, modification, and use of the physical facilities as contrasted with staff functions of day-to-day operations.  The Committee's involvement includes construction, maintenance, landscaping, parking and traffic, and campus security.  The Committee serves as a channel of communications among faculty members, administrators, staff, and the students, both as to origination of plans and ideas, and in reporting on development plans.
