Document Description
The Berkeley campus, in a joint proposal with UC Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, proposes to establish a new research campus entitled the Richmond Bay Campus (RBC) on the site of the UC Berkeley Richmond Field Station and nearby Regatta property owned by the University of California within the City of Richmond, CA. The proposed Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) indicates how approximately 5.4 million gross square feet (gsf) of research and development office/laboratory space and supporting facilities would be allocated on the 134.1 developable acres over a 40-year time period. It is projected that 650,000 gsf of existing facilities would remain on site and thus 4.75 million gsf of new space is planned to be developed. Ultimately a population of approximately 10,000 is projected to be located on site. The Plan preserves approximately 25 acres as natural open space, including marsh and coastal terrace prairie grasslands. In parallel with preparing the LRDP and the LRDP EIR for the RBC, UC Berkeley developed and submitted to the Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) a draft Removal Action Workplan (RAW) for the Richmond Field Station portion of the RBC; this was published in November 2013 for public comment. The public had a 45-day review period that paralleled the draft LRDP review period. Impacts of implementing the RAW were analyzed in the LRDP EIR. DTSC has stated that it intends to consider the RAW for approval after the Regents makes its determination on the RBC LRDP and LRDP EIR.
