Document Description
Humboldt has revised and recirculated this NOP to address the expanded scope of the project. The previous NOP identified a residential capacity of up to 850 student beds and 20 student family housing units, but due to campus housing needs, the number and type of student housing to be constructed has been amended. The project now includes up to 1,050 student beds and student-family housing is no longer included in the project. In addition, the project site has been expanded to include the 5 parcels located north of the project site. The complex would include an exercise gym, common lounge spaces, study spaces, computer rooms, television rooms, conference rooms, and a market /convenience store. Exterior amenities would include green space, covered bicycle parking, outdoor cooking, and appropriate hardscapes. The project would include on-site parking and exterior safety lighting. The project includes purchase of the project site by Cal Poly Humboldt from the University Foundation, which acquired the property in 2021 with the intent to develop it for campus purposes.
