UVa officials met with some community members to talk about future plans to build "The University of Tomorrow."
Tonight's meeting gave an overview of the campus's construction plans, but mainly focused on the John Paul Jones Arena. In particular, they discussed parking and traffic concerns for the different events held at the arena.
"We'll be moving into the arena here shortly in the next week or two and we anticipate having our first event August 1st which is Cirque de Soleil," Kovatch said.
Kovatch also added that the construction did come in within the predicted $129 million budget.
