Tennis courts will be relocated to be adjacent to physical plant between S Frederick and S Weinbach butted up against the Lloyd Expwy. There are 9 residential homes there now which I believe UE owns most of at this time.
Here is a previous master plan: https://www.evansville.edu/offices/pres ... vision.pdf
Those plans (Sept 2013) are outdated and that President is no longer around. The downtown site for the medical campus was selected April 2014, which is where some of the programs mentioned in that plan will now be housed.
A student fitness center is greatly needed. So hopefully that is what is next on the docket as far as facilities are concerned.
You are right about Weinbach though. There is a growing sentiment that the first impression offered turning off the Lloyd onto S Weinbach isn’t the best. Tennis courts there would be an improvement for sure. Can’t wait to see President P’s plan.
