Document Description
The proposed 2021 Long Range Development Plan (2021 LRDP) is a plan put forth by UC Riverside to guide development on the main UC Riverside campus for the next 15 years. The campus is generally bounded by Blaine Street on the north, Watkins Drive on the east, Le Conte Drive on the south, and Chicago Avenue on the west. Interstate 215/State Route 60 (I-215/SR 60) bisect the campus diagonally. The two resulting areas of campus are depicted as East Campus and West Campus. Development under the 2021 LRDP is designed to accommodate a total enrollment of approximately 35,000 students (Fall quarter headcount) by the academic year 2035/2036. The 2021 LRDP would guide long-range land use development, open space preservation and improvements, multi-modal mobility planning, and infrastructure sustainability and resiliency efforts. To accommodate the anticipated increase of approximately 11,078 students and 2,806 faculty and staff by academic year 2035/2036, the 2021 LRDP proposes a net increase in development of approximately 3.7 million assignable square feet (approximately 6 million gross square feet) of additional academic buildings, support facilities, and student housing. The 2021 LRDP would provide on-campus or campus-controlled student housing for approximately 40 percent of the student population, equal to approximately 7,489 new on-campus beds. The 2021 LRDP proposes the following land use designations: Academics & Research, Campus Support, Land-based Research, Open Space Reserve, Recreation & Athletics, Student Neighborhood, Agricultural/Campus Research, UCR Botanic Gardens, Canyon Crest Gateway, and University Avenue Gateway. The proposed 2021 LRDP is a campus wide plan to guide development, however adoption of the proposed 2021 LRDP does not constitute a commitment to any specific project. Rather, development under the 2021 LRDP would occur over time, based on campus needs and funding availability. The UC Regents and/or its delegated authorities must approve each development proposal, as appropriate. At the campus level, the review of campus development proposals is informed by a process that involves input from staff, faculty, and students (and the local community as appropriate). The proposed 2021 LRDP would require approval by the Board of Regents of the University of California.
