University of California Merced Long-Range Development Plan

Merced, CA

Project Description

The University of California has established a tenth campus in the San Joaquin Valley which will ultimately serve 25,000 FTE students at full buildout. Planning for the new campus, located outside of the town of Merced in Merced County, was a joint effort of the University of California, the County of Merced, and a host of interested community, federal and state agencies, and environmental groups. The Long-Range Development Plan establishes the vision for the campus, articulating underlying ideas that have framed its siting, layout and character. The LRDP also provides a history of planning for the campus to date, and sets policies and principles to guide future decisions.
