UC Berkeley's 2020 LRDP proposes a framework of policies and guidelines to shape the future growth and renewal of the campus in a way that supports key academic goals and preserves the university's historic architecture, natural beauty and unique character.
The environmental analysis, completed on January 3, 2005, assesses the effects of the 2020 LRDP and would serve as the baseline for future reviews and approvals of individual capital projects implemented under the 2020 LRDP. It also evaluates effects of the Chang-Lin Tien Center for East Asian Studies, the first specific project proposed under the 2020 LRDP.
The community is invited to view the 2020 LRDP & EIR, which was revised in response to public comments on the draft 2020 LRDP & EIR released in spring 2004.
UC Berkeley published the first announcement for the 2020 LRDP in August 2003. The announcement, officially known as the Notice of Preparation, declared the university's intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the LRDP and sought comments from appropriate governmental agencies and the public on the scope of the environmental analysis.
