What's New: LRDP certified with modifications by the California Coastal Commission at the November 2014 Hearing.

UC Santa Barbara is renewing its Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), a plan that details how the campus will develop to the year 2025. The 2010 LRDP and accompanying Environmental Impact Report (EIR) were circulated in Spring 2008 and recirculated in 2009. The LRDP and Final EIR (FEIR) were aprroved by the UC Board of Regents in September 2010, and the LRDP was submitted to California Coastal Commission staff for review in May of 2011. Comments on the LRDP document were received from California Coastal Commission (CCC) staff and a revised document was submitted in October 2014. The CCC approved the LRDP with modifications at their November 2014 hearing, as mentioned on The Current (the official UCSB news site). The next steps for UCSB Campus Planning & Design will be to incorporate the 20 modifications into the LRDP, complete several management plans and studies, and provide annual reports to the CCC.

The management plans and studies include:

  • Open Space Management Plan
  • Coal Oil Point Management Plan
  • Outdoor Lighting Plan
  • Sea Level Rise Study
  • Lot 38 Road Re-Route Plan
  • Manure Management Plan for horse facilities on West Campus

The annual reports include:

  • Coastal Access Parking - utilization
  • General Parking - utilization
  • Alternative Transportation - single occupancy vehicle trip survey and reduction measures
  • Water Use - potable and reclaimed amounts, new project demand, supply projection, conservation efforts
  • Academic Build Out - running total of GSF as part of each proposed project
  • Housing Build Out - running total of GSF, beds/units, user types, and location of each proposed project
