UCSF Campus Planning and Community Relations teams met with Parnassus neighbors Feb. 11 to present the proposed Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), which will guide UCSF’s physical development over the next 20 years.

The 2014 plan, which will see the University through the construction of a new hospital and campus housing at Parnassus Heights, as well as new facilities at Mission Bay, has been three years in the making so far in an effort to balance the concerns of our neighbors alongside those of the campus in maintaining the caliber of its research, education and patient care.

The previous LRDP, from 1996, guided development through 2012 and primarily focused on the development of Mission Bay. The 2014 plan covers all of UCSF’s campus sites and includes physical development proposals for the Parnassus Heights, Mission Bay, Mount Zion and Mission Center locations, as well as potential consolidations of UCSF space at San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. The Draft 2014 LRDP is scheduled to be published in May 2014 and presented to the UC Board of Regents in November 2014 for approval.
