Campus Planning

Campus Planning is responsible for the improvement of the physical resources at UC Riverside through the integration of the campus strategic plan, academic plans, the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), and other planning studies that help guide the development of the campus in a holistic way.

Campus Planning is part of the Capital Asset Strategies group in the Division of Planning and Budget. There are three main areas of emphasis:

Capital Planning includes project concept development, project approval coordination, exploration of project implementation options, consideration of funding options and funding analysis.

Capital Planning is responsible for organizing the Capital Projects Committee (CPC), which advises the Executive Vice Chancellor/Provost and the Chancellor on a variety of Capital Asset Strategy efforts and initiatives.

Capital Planning works cooperatively with affinity campus units including Financial Planning and Analysis, Institutional Research, Architects + Engineers, Enterprise Risk Management, Procurement, Accounting, Computing and Communications, Facilities Services to advance projects that part of the university mission and consistent with the campus strategic plan, Physical Master Plan Study and Long Range Development Plan.

Physical Planning is responsible for the stewardship of the campus’ unique physical setting. It leads and/or participates in planning, land use, and facility siting studies, and provides decision support on campus development priorities, identity, and aesthetics,

Physical Planning develops and maintains consistency with the campus’ Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), a document that articulates the physical growth aspirations of the campus. The current LRDP was completed in 2005, with land use amendments in 2011 and 2013, respectively.

Physical Planning works cooperatively with campus affinity units and serves as a liaison with the City, County, and other agencies on planning and development priorities.

Environmental Planning is responsible for assuring campus compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA), as well as handling consultation, permitting, and agreements with responsible State and Federal agencies.

Environmental Planning manages preparation of CEQA and NEPA documentation to support project approvals, documents compliance with required mitigation monitoring programs, and manages specialized environmental studies required for campus actions that affect the physical environment.

Environmental Planning works cooperatively with campus affinity units to advance campus projects in a way that minimizes environmental impacts and maintains UCR’s unique natural resources.
