Document Description
Occidental College is proposing a Master Plan for the 120-acre campus. The Master Plan vision for the Occidental College describes an approach to the long-term physical configuration of the campus that would be implemented through a variety of projects that address architecture, landscape, traffic and parking, sustainability, historic preservation, and neighborhood compatibility. These projects are organized under programs that include the renovation of existing facilities, the construction of new facilities, and infrastructure improvements. Some of the expansion and rehabilitation projects would require the demolition of existing buildings (no historic buildings would be demolished). The Master Plan would result in the net addition of approximately 455,000 square feet to the existing approximately 1,150,000 square feet of building area. Additionally, the Master Plan designates zones that would allow the construction of individual projects. The proposed project includes a Development Agreement with the City of Los Angeles. The actions contemplated by this application would not result in an increase in the number of students, faculty, and staff at Occidental College; rather, it would provide much needed and improved facilities such as on campus housing. The proposed changes would not expand any of the academic programs nor the extra-curricular activities offered by the college. The alterations would not increase the number of off-campus visitors to the college nor increase the demand for on-site parking. The plan includes the removal of 390 parking spaces, since there is an excess current and projected parking capacity.
