Document Description
The proposed 2021 LRDP is intended to guide development on the main UCR campus for the next 15 years. Development under the proposed 2021 LRDP is designed to accommodate a total projected enrollment of approximately 35,000 students (Fall quarter headcount) by the academic year 2035/2036. The proposed 2021 LRDP would guide long-range land use development, open space preservation and improvements, multi-modal mobility planning, and infrastructure sustainability and resiliency efforts. Through gradual phased development, the goal of the proposed 2021 LRDP is to accommodate the enrollment growth and meet program needs in an efficient and sustainable manner. To accommodate the anticipated increase of approximately 11,078 students (7,419 undergraduate and 3,659 graduate) and 2,806 faculty and staff by academic year 2035/2036, the proposed 2021 LRDP proposes a net increase in development of approximately 3.7 million assignable square feet (asf) (approximately 5.5 million gross square feet (gsf)) of additional academic buildings, support facilities, and student housing. The proposed 2021 LRDP would provide on-campus or campus-controlled student housing for approximately 40 percent of eligible students (or 68 percent of the increase in student population), equal to approximately 7,489 new on-campus beds. The proposed 2021 LRDP includes 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 plan to guide development, but it is not an implementation plan. Adoption of the proposed 2021 LRDP does not constitute a commitment to any specific project. Rather, development under the proposed 2021 LRDP would occur over time, based on campus needs and funding availability. The 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).
