Cal Poly Master Plan

Cal Poly Master Plan Update

Cal Poly will prepare an Environmental Impact Report for the Master Plan 2035. The Master Plan provides a framework for implementation of the University’s goals and programs by identifying needed facilities and improvements to accommodate a gradual growth in student enrollment due to area-wide and regional growth in student population and continuing high demand for Cal Poly education. The student enrollment is projected to reach 22,500 full-time equivalent (FTE) students (25,000 head count) by 2035. The Master Plan main objective is to guide campus development accommodating this gradual student enrollment growth over the next 20 years while preserving and enhancing the quality of campus life.

Cal Poly completed an Initial Study for the Master Plan which indicates that the project may potentially have significant environmental impacts which will be addressed in the EIR being prepared by University. The 30-day public review period for the Initial Study begins on October 3, 2016 and ends on November 1, 2016.
