Appalachian State University is gathering feedback regarding the university’s recently acquired 74-acre property on the site of the former Watauga High School.

Listening sessions have been scheduled and, for those unable to attend, an online feedback form has been established.

The next listening session is scheduled for Wednesday January 31, 2018, from 9 - 10:30 a.m. at 417 Plemmons Student Union (Beacon Heights).

This feedback to university leadership will help inform decisions regarding future development opportunities for this property.

Proposed options for development of the new acquisition have included student residence halls, a day care facility and student recreation fields.

The property’s current parking configuration accommodates 500 spaces, which could offer a short-term alleviation for limited parking available on the university’s main campus.

Please submit your feedback by Friday, Feb. 9, 2018.
