Overview
     Towson University requests a total of $48.5 million for three projects. The projects consist of: 1)
$7.4 million in general funds and $20 million in GO bond funds to construct an addition to its Fine Arts
Building and to renovate the existing building; 2) $1.6 million in general funds and $1.4 million in GO
bond funds to pay additional construction costs and to purchase capital equipment for the 7800 York Road
property; and 3) $11.8 in general funds and $6.3 in nonbudgeted funds (NBF) for the third and final phase
of its Regional Sports Complex.

   The Department of Legislative Services (DLS) recommends approving all three projects.

Fine Arts Building Project

PAYGO GF                   $7,443,000           Recommendation: Approve
GO Bonds                  $20,000,000

Project Description: Construct a 122,000 gross square foot (GSF) addition to the three-story Center
for the Arts located on the campus of Towson University. The building addition will contain offices,
classrooms, theater/dance laboratory space, building support and storage space for the fine arts academic
departments as well as related programs: Asian Arts and Culture Center, the Office of the Dean of the
College of Fine Arts and Communication, and the Office of the Maryland Arts Festival. The addition will
alleviate space shortages which are limiting enrollment in fine arts courses and permit the Department of
Dance to move from Burdick Hall to the Center for the Arts. This new addition will span Cross Campus
Drive. The project also includes construction of a pedestrian bridge across Cross Campus Drive to
connect both components of the addition, to connect the Center for the Arts to the main campus, and to
provide more convenient access to the Union Parking Garage for arts attendees.


Comments: The funds requested for fiscal 2002 will be used to finish the design of both the addition
and renovation phases of this project and to construct the addition. The renovation of the existing building
is scheduled for fiscal 2004 which is one year later than anticipated in last year’s Capital Improvement
Program (CIP). The $7.4 million general fund appropriation represents the increased project cost
attributed to the current market conditions. Last year’s CIP anticipated only the $20 million in general
obligation funding. The estimated cost of the renovation phase of the project has also been increased from
$16 million to $18.4 million. The amount anticipated for equipment to be funded in fiscal 2004 remains
unchanged at $3 million.

     This construction project will provide additional classroom and performance space for programs with
existing space needs and with projected space deficits. It will also consolidate the Departments of Theater,
Art, Music, and Dance into one building. Full-time equivalent student (FTES) enrollment at Towson is
expected to increase by 10.8% by 2010 from 12,757 FTES in 2000 to 14,141 FTES in 2010. A recent
space needs analysis, premised upon a 14% enrollment increase from 1999 to 2009, noted that enrollment
in the departments of the College of Fine Arts and Communication is projected to increase by an average
of 17% over the next ten years. Enrollment in the fine arts curriculum at Towson has already increased
by 25% over the past five years, with corresponding increases in faculty. The space needs analysis noted
existing and projected space deficits for programs in the fine arts. Currently, existing space constraints
limit enrollment in the fine arts programs.

    In fiscal 2004, the existing building will be renovated. Renovation includes upgrading or replacing
building infrastructure (i.e., HVAC, electric, sewer service, etc.); installing state-of-the-art lighting, wiring,
rigging, sound, and communication systems; and improving acoustics in rehearsal and performance areas.
In addition, the project will remedy asbestos and lead paint hazards, improve air circulation efficiency, and
provide improved architectural finishes on public areas. Related site improvements are also included.

                       DE.02.RB24 - BPW - USM - Towson University - PAYGO

   The architect/engineering (A/E) fees exceed the guidelines of 7% for new construction and 7.5% for
renovation due to the need for special A/E services for such elements as lighting and sound systems.

Regional Sports Complex

PAYGO GF                  $11,750,000          Recommendation: Approve
Non-Budgeted               $6,250,000


Project Description: The current request is for funding for the final phase of a three-phase project to
construct a Regional Sports Complex at Minnegan Stadium on the Towson University campus. The entire
project includes construction of a 74,831 gross square foot (GSF), four-story field house; renovation of
existing space; installation of artificial turf; resurfacing the running track; and increasing the seating
capacity of Minnegan Stadium from 4,800 to 11,000 seats.

     The first phase of the project, begun in July 1999 included installation of artificial turf and construction
of improvements to stormwater systems to support the artificial turf. The fiscal 2001 budget included $7
million to complete the second phase of the project, construction of additional seating, an entry plaza with
concessions, ticket booths, and a promenade to connect north- and south-side seating along with necessary
site improvements and infrastructure support.

   The third phase of the project for which funding is requested, involves construction of the field house
which will contain offices, two classrooms, and locker room facilities. The third phase also includes
rebuilding the south-side seating and press box, installation of new stadium lighting, resurfacing of the
outdoor track, and stormwater and other infrastructure improvements.

Comments: There is no request for future funding after fiscal 2002. This project was included in last
year’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) at the level being requested.

University Meets JCR Conditions for Stadium Expansion: In last year’s Joint Chairmen’s Report,
the committees included narrative to support the expansion of permanent seating at Minnegan Stadium
with the understanding that the university would:

!   secure necessary parking agreements with area hospitals or establish an alternative, adequate parking
    plan by the time the expansion phase of the project is completed;

!   not schedule non-university events larger than current stadium capacity (approximately 5,000) on
    Friday evenings until the Charles Street/Towsontown Boulevard intersection is improved with the
    university working in cooperation with the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA);

!   form an event scheduling committee to oversee and monitor stadium use for non-university events
    above current stadium capacity; and

!   continue regular contacts with surrounding hospitals in regard to large campus events in order to
    ensure that access to emergency care is not compromised.



                                                       8

     In response, the university has secured the use of 680 additional parking spaces consisting of 300 off-
site parking spaces at Baltimore County facilities, 200 spaces at the Sheppard Pratt facilities, and 180 new
spaces on campus. The university has received a letter from SHA concurring that the intersection between
Charles Street and Towsontown Boulevard needs to be improved. SHA plans to fund engineering for the
project in fiscal 2002 with anticipated construction to begin in fiscal 2003. The university has established
an event scheduling committee with the community. The university has updated its emergency access plan
included within the Memorandum of Understanding for the Coordination of Law Enforcement
Responsibilities between the university and Baltimore County to ensure access to emergency care during
large campus events.

7800 York Road Renovation

Bill Text: Construct renovations to the building located at 7800 York Road.


Project Description: Acquire and renovate a circa-1962, four-story, 115,500 gross square foot (GSF)
office building located at 7800 York Road. Renovation will affect approximately 100,000 GSF and will
provide office and classroom space to accommodate current and projected enrollment growth.
Renovations will include interior and exterior architectural improvements, asbestos removal, and
repartitioning as necessary to accommodate the needs of the departments expected to occupy the building.


Comments: In December 1997 this building was purchased for $6.5 million. The university is currently
occupying the second, fourth, and part of the third floor of this building -- approximately half of its usable
space. The first floor of the building is largely retail, including a pharmacy and a restaurant. The
restaurant will continue to lease its space, 11,489 GSF, and will not be affected by the renovation.

    After renovation is complete, the building will house the following university programs and services:
Computer and Information Science Department (including a floor of classroom and laboratory space); the
College of Extended Programs; the College of Graduate Education and Research; and the Career Service
Center which is already located in the building; and Administrative Services (including a printing center,
tutoring services, and the students with disabilities office). The university has existing and projected space
deficits for office and laboratory space. In addition, enrollment at the university is expected to grow by
approximately 11% between 2000 and 2010. The university expects enrollment in Computer and
Information Science programs to increase by approximately 50% from 1999 to 2007 (student enrollment
in 1999 was 1,040 and is projected to be 1,573 in 2007, a 51% increase; student credit hours in 1999 were
4,507 and are projected to be 7,045 in 2007, a 56% increase). The number of faculty employed by the
department is expected to increase from 21 in 1997 to 35 in 2007.

    Last year’s CIP included only $1.4 million in GO bond funds for equipment. The additional $1.6
million in general funds requested for fiscal 2002 to offset increased construction costs. There is no
request for future funding after fiscal 2002.
