Document Description
The proposed project consists of adding 9701 and 9750 Jeronimo Road parcels into the campus master plan. The Chapman University Rinker Health Science campus master plan currently consists of two parcels located at 9401 and 9501 Jeronimo Road and allows for a maximum of 500 students. Figure 3, Project Site Aerial, depicts the locations of the various parcels which comprise the campus. The Rinker Health Science Campus teaches graduate students in the fields of Health Sciences including, but not limited to, physical therapy, pharmacy, physicians' assistance, and regulatory science disciplines. The existing building at 9701 Jeronimo Road would be converted from existing office and research and development uses to institutional uses. No exterior improvements are proposed at 9701 Jeronimo with the exception of minor parking lot alterations to comply with City of Irvine parking standards (not including where Administrative Relief is being requested). The existing vacant lot at 9750 Jeronimo Road would be developed into a new 540-space parking lot The project also proposes to increase the maximum student enrollment from 500 to 906 and the maximum number off staff/faculty members from 125 to 227, for the overall campus. Additionally, the project proposes an at-grade pedestrian crosswalk that would cross Jeronimo Road, connecting the 9701 and 9750 Jeronimo parcels and controlled by a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB). Lastly, the project includes an update to the campus' sign program to allow for up to two walls signs, four monument signs, as well as signage that would aid in campus wayfinding for vehicles and pedestrians. No physical exterior changes will occur to the existing Chapman University Rinker Health Science Campus' buildings located at 9401 and 9501 Jeronimo Road as a result of this project.
