KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) --    They have saved the trees on the WMU Campus.  Plans for a new Dining Hall that would have been built in the Goldsworth Valley to serve all three Valley complexes are being shelved for now, after they learned they would have to remove 500 trees to make room.  It was vetoed by President John Dunn in a message to the campus yesterday.

Spokeswoman Cheryl Roland says that’s when a petition drive was begun opposing the location. The Dining hall is still planned to serve the Goldsworth Valley Residents halls. They will just have to find a new location.

She says students in the Valley dorms will continue to use the dining facilities they currently use.
