Document Description
The subject of this NOP for an EIR is the Saint Mary's College Campus Master Plan which is intended to be the guiding document for future growth on the campus. The planning horizon is about 15 years (2015 to 2030). Phase 1 projects (2016-2020) are expected to result in about 173,000 gsf of new building area and 148 new parking spaces. Phase 2 projects (2020-2030) would result in about 39,000 gsf of new building area and a reduction of 8 parking spaces. New development would occur generally in the currently developed area of the campus (approximately 105 acres), leaving much of the undeveloped lands untouched. Access would remain from St. Mary's Road at the northwest end of the campus. The new/remodeled projects include the following: Library and Learning Commons; New Elevated Parking Structure; Saint Albert Hall Library Repurposing; McKeon Pavilion Remodel and Expansion; Secondary Ingress/Egress; New Residential Building; Madigan Gym Remodel; New Student Center; New Entryway Roundabout; New Tennis Court Restrooms; New Baseball Seating; Stadium Upgrades; New Theater/Academic Building and Chapel Green Roundabout. The existing campus includes 68 buildings and approximately 969,000 gsf, with about 105 acres of the 443-acre campus developed as the "campus core" where academic and student life buildings are concentrated. The campus provides 1,576 residence hall beds. Currently, there are 2,787 fulltime undergraduate students and 755 fulltime, on-campus graduate students. At project completion, there would be about 2,820 fulltime undergraduate students and 1,012 fulltime, on-campus graduate students. By 2030, the Master Plan would provide for about 212,540 gsf of new building area. New landscaping and utility extensions would also occur over the planning horizon. Two-story, elevated parking structures would be provided in two locations in areas where surface parking is now provided. Bikeway and pedestrian improvements would be included. The Master Plan includes Design Guidelines related to architectural design, landscaping, and sustainability.
