  • Background

    UC Santa Cruz began the planning process for the LRDP in fall 2017 by conducting a series of meetings and interviews with campus and community stakeholders. The planning process was steered by the LRDP Planning Committee, made up of students, staff, faculty, and community members, who met approximately 18 times to review progress and shape the plan.

    UC Santa Cruz also engaged regularly with a Community Advisory Group, consisting of city, county, and community representatives, to maintain an ongoing exchange of ideas and information and explore common goals to issues that confront both UC Santa Cruz and the surrounding community.

    Expert workgroups provided technical feedback on planning efforts at critical milestones, in the areas of Ecology and the Environment, Housing and Student Life, Infrastructure and Sustainability, and Transportation. The workgroups consisted of subject-matter experts from staff, faculty and the community.

    In addition to structured feedback from these groups, the campus held multiple public meetings and workshops for both the campus and community for additional feedback to shape the plan.
