You’re all set! To accommodate 10,000 additional students at California State University, Northridge, over the next 30 years, the school will have to build more housing, classrooms, a transit center and thousands of parking spaces, according to a draft environmental review. The 30-year master plan, called Envision 2035, outlines the school’s massive construction effort and the potential impacts on the surrounding community, which include more traffic and less open space on campus. CSUN officials will take public comments tonight at a meeting in the Oviatt Library. They expect to finish the thick report in January and take it to the board of trustees in March. “They’re not going to build any more CSU campuses in the future, so all campuses have to take their role in enrollment growth,” said Colin Donahue, director of facilities, planning, design and construction at CSUN. “We wanted to take a look at the growth of the campus from student enrollment and the building needed to accommodate that.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals As enrollment grows to 35,000 students, congestion around the university will be impacted the most, according to the report. More than 30 intersections will be affected, and several neighborhood streets will see more traffic. Even with increased public transportation, students will generate roughly 75,000 vehicle trips a day – or nearly 17,000 more trips than now. The school will need up to 4,000 new parking spaces, or two new parking garages. In addition, the 353-acre campus will experience a construction boom, with nearly 2 million new square feet of space, including a science building with research labs, a student housing complex and a 1,600-seat performing arts center. The nearly $900,000 master plan will replace the 1998 plan that was designed to help the school recover from the 1994 Northridge Earthquake. For more information about the plan, log on to the Web site at www.csun.edu/envision2035. The public hearing will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Oviatt Library presentation room. Those attending should park in structure B5 off Darby Avenue and download and print a copy of the official meeting notice to use as a campus parking pass. last_img read more
