CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The architect that oversaw planning for the $50 million restoration of the University of Virginia's iconic Rotunda is stepping down.

The Charlottesville school said Friday that David Neuman plans to resign from his post in October after an 11-year tenure.

During his time at the university, Neuman spearheaded numerous construction and renovation projects and guided land-use, facilities, historic preservation and sustainability planning.

He established design guidelines and oversees design for all buildings and grounds.

Neuman joined the university founded by Thomas Jefferson in 2003 after serving 14 years as university architect and associate vice provost for planning at Stanford University.

Officials say work to restore the historic features of the Rotunda and return it to its place as a center of student activity and academics has entered its second phase.
