Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 13th at 6pm, the Berkeley City Council will be hosting a special meeting to discuss the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) for the University of California, Berkeley. The LRDP is renewed every 15 years and is the primary blueprint for the University’s development plans for the next 15 years. As part of this process, the University is soliciting written comments from the public to provide input on its draft LRDP and draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The public comment period is open until Wednesday, April 21 at 5pm. 

Comments can be sent:

Via mail to: UC Berkeley, Physical & Environmental Planning, Attention: 2021 LRDP and Housing Projects #1 and #2 Draft EIR, 300 A&E Building, Berkeley, CA 94720-1382

Or via email to: [email protected] Include “Draft EIR Comments: 2021 LRDP and Housing Projects #1 and #2” in the subject line.

Written comments will be responded to in the Final EIR. UC Berkeley plans to submit the updated LRDP and EIR to the UC Regents for approval later this year.
