Document Description
Reference SCH # 2009081053 The proposed project would consist of an approximately 40,000 gross square-foot (gsf) three-story research facility located on a 1.2-acre site. The facility would consist of approximately 10,000 gsf of laboratory space and 30,000 gsf of office, conference, and support space. Approximately 60 to 64 employees would staff the MESOM laboratory. The proposed project aims to integrate and consolidate existing students, faculty, staff and research equipment, and other associated academic resources into one building. In addition, in order to improve public visual access to the coastline and ocean, selective vegetation removal and management would be implemented and maintained in areas identified that currently interfere with views to the coast and ocean.
