Overview of the Master Plan
The Master Plan Revision process began with architecture and landscape
architecture consultants developing a proposal reflecting the basic components
of the Revision. In addition, campus task forces developed proposals for
two of these components: the Music Center
and the University Center.
In March, 1999, two important steps in the Master Plan Revision process
began: a Community Outreach Program and the Environmental Impact Report
for the Revision.
The Community Outreach Program is intended
to get input on all aspects of the proposal, from both the campus community
and from surrounding communities. It will result in a report to the Campus
Planning Committee in early May. The report will summarize input to the
Outreach Program and could result in revisions to Master Plan Revison
proposal, as well as identifying possible project alternatives, a required
portion of the Environmental Impact Report.
The Environmental Impact Report process, required by the California Environmental
Quality Act, has begun, with the retention of ESA, an environmental impact
consulting firm. Their work, which is intended to be informed by Community
Outreach Program, will result in publication of a Draft Environmental
Impact Report, scheduled for the beginning of the Fall 1999 semester.
This will be followed by a public review period, with an opportunity for
The final outcomes of the Master Plan Revision process are completion
of a Final Environmental Impact Report, a recommendation by the Campus
Planning Committee to President Armiñana regarding the Revision, the President's
recommendation to the CSU Board of Trustees, and a decision by the Trustees.
