2017 Long Range Development Plan

Within the University of California, a long range development plan (LRDP) is a comprehensive policy and land use plan that identifies potential population growth in terms of enrollment and employment and considers physical development to achieve the academic mission. For UC Davis, the LRDP is specific to programs geographically located on the main campus in Davis and does not include the UC Davis Medical Center or other satellite programs not physically located in Davis.

The 2017 LRDP is an update of the 2003 LRDP. The LRDP update will accommodate sizeable growth in our student, faculty and staff campus population while promoting compact built form, creating great places for people to learn and interact, and advancing our sustainability goals, socially, academically, financially and environmentally. The LRDP Draft Planning Scenario, released in the fall of 2016, precedes the DRAFT LRDP and DRAFT LRDP EIR which are expected in spring 2017.

For more information on next steps and the planning process to date please see the outreach tab.

Neighborhood Planning

The LRDP uses neighborhoods as a framework to make planning concepts more accessible and provide more context for campus and the community. Some issues are specific to a certain neighborhood, others cut across neighborhood boundaries, and still others affect the whole of campus.
