As part of the many activities Dartmouth has scheduled for Veterans Day, we have created a War Memorial Map. We highlight 7 sites on campus that commemorate the men and women who have so proudly and valiantly worn the uniforms of our nation’s military.
West Wheelock Street Design Charrette- Tell us what you think!
A Plan NH Design Team is coming to Hanover to help sort out the many issues associated with the West Wheelock Corridor. The Hanover Affordable Housing Commission and Hanover Planning Board recognize underutilized residential land area close to the downtown, a prominent gateway to our Main Street commercial district and the Dartmouth College campus, challenging topography, and the need to accommodate high traffic volumes with pedestrian safety. What do you think?
There will be two public input sessions on Friday, November 8 at the Parish Hall, St. Thomas Church at 9 West Wheelock Street. The sessions are scheduled from 3-4:30 PM and 6-7:30 PM. The Design Team’s final presentation will be held at the Parish Hall on Saturday, November 9 from 3:30- 4:30 PM.
The Hanover Planning Board is meeting with neighborhoods all over town to discuss resident and landowner desires for the future of their neighborhood. The Hanover Planning Board enthusiastically supports the assistance that could be provided by a community charrette team. The neighborhood planning parties are a first step toward revision of our 2003 Master Plan. A charrette format was successfully used to jump start our work on revising the zoning in our downtown. Based on that experience, we believe a charrette is a good way to involve the variety of stakeholder interests in developing a vision for the corridor and exploring how increased density could be introduced to the area.
We are excited to share that Dartmouth has added a new Zip Car to its collection. The Toyota Prius can be found in front of Whittemore Hall. Check for availability and other details here.
At Dartmouth we have a pretty good idea about when our approximately 150 buildings on the core campus were built. We can do some cool coloring stuff with GIS too, but imagine coloring the buildings of a whole country!
The Waag Society a institute for art, science and technology, that develops creative technology for social innovation did that for the 9,866,539 buildings in the Netherlands, shaded according to year of construction!
Forget your metro pass or ‘Charlie Card’? MIT students have developed an open “Sesame Ring,” a very cool example of wearable technology. It’s not bad looking either.
Imagine your very own Dartmouth Super Hero Ring that could be used to check out a book at Baker, swipe at the Fitness Center or grab a coffee at Collis. Amazing!

Monday, July 15th 2013–Our official website for the offices of Planning and Design and Project Management has been re-designed to match the dynamic interface of the new Dartmouth website. The site includes a brand new gallery that features photos of recent completed projects around the campus, Facebook postings, bios of our staff in the office, and brief descriptions of the projects that we are working on in Planning, Design and Construction. Feel free to poke around and tell us what you think!
