Mount Saint Mary’s University, the campus sitting atop Chalon Road via Bundy Drive, is adding their name to the list of school’s desiring to add to their campus facilities. Archer School for Girls and Brentwood School have already signed covenants to expand their campus structures and now MSMU sees a new “Wellness Facility” in their future.
Some nearby homeowners are complaining MSMU already generates more than enough traffic on the narrow streets of Bundy Drive and Norman Place, and a new modern facility will only draw more students from MSMU’s other campus, further drowning the canyon streets buses and cars.
Residents will be unlikely to stop the project as the City is inclined to approve most institutional requests with only minor concessions. The University is set to do an Environmental Impact report which will present more information about the effects the project will have on the surrounding community and traffic. The report should be released in January.
