Representatives from Kansas State University and the KSU Foundation are working together to establish a
research park on a parcel of land owned by the Foundation, which is located south of Flint Hills Place on the west
side of North Manhattan Avenue.

Neighbors who reside in the area adjacent to the proposed park are invited to a meeting where detailed plans
related to the park will be presented. The meeting will be held Tuesday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Manhattan Fire
Department at Denison and Kimball.

David Weaver, the Foundationís vice president for real estate and investments, said K-State and Foundation
representatives will discuss details regarding the site, facilities, traffic and green space, and invite those present
to ask any questions they may have about the park.

The Manhattan Urban Area Planning Board will consider the proposed research park Jan. 4, 2001. The proposal
will then proceed to the Manhattan City Commission for their consideration.
