The Ohio State-Mansfield/North-Central State College campus is approaching its 50th anniversary.

That has campus leaders thinking about how the two schools should prepare for the next 50 years.

About three dozen community, business, and economic development leaders, including the mayors of Mansfield and Shelby, attended a 90-minute town hall meeting Thursday morning to hear about the Campus Framework Plan. 

Ohio State-Mansfield Dean and Director Dr. Stephen Gavazzi says the plan addresses how the campus can become more integrated with the community, and calls for its front entrance to move to an area of Lexington-Springmill Road with economic development opportunities. 

North-Central State College President Dr. Dorey Diab says it's never too early to plan for the future, and the purpose of Thursday's meeting, and another next Monday at five pm in the Conard Performance Hall in Riedl Hall, is to take public input on the plan.   

Gavazzi says Most of the work in the final Campus Framework Plan should be done over the next 30 years, a period in which enrollment in both colleges is expected to grow.
