SAN FRANCISCO, December 1, 2006 -- San Francisco State University invites its campus neighbors and other interested community members to review its draft long-term master plan. The draft plan proposes changes to buildings, green spaces, transportation routes and resources needed to meet anticipated demands for access and a high-quality university education through 2020.

Meetings will be held:

  • 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 5, at the Cesar Chavez Student Center, San Francisco State University, 1650 Holloway Ave., San Francisco (in the center of the main campus)
  • 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 9, Meeting Room at Villas at Parkmerced Shops, 77 Cambon Drive, San Francisco (next door to Park Plaza Foods)
  • 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 17, Auditorium Lobby, Lowell High School, 1101 Eucalyptus Drive, San Francisco

The University has received input on the planning process from the campus community and its neighbors at five open houses, two scoping sessions that gathered input for the environmental impact review process that accompanies a master plan, and from comments e-mailed from the Web site.

The December meetings offer interested parties the opportunity to discuss and comment on the draft master plan. Comments will be received up to 30 days following the final open house and will be considered during preparation of the final master plan. Preparation of a draft environmental impact report (EIR) is in progress and the draft EIR will be opened for public review for a period of 60 days. Upon receipt of public comments on the draft EIR, a final master plan and EIR will be prepared and presented to the CSU Board of Trustees for certification.

The last SF State master plan was completed in 1989. Each campus in the 23-campus California State University system updates its master plan periodically, evaluating the university’s physical resources to ensure it can continue to meet its goals of providing access to a high-quality higher education for every qualified Californian.

More details on the project are available on SF State’s master plan Web site --

SF State is the only master’s-level public university serving the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin. The University enrolls about 29,000 students each year and graduates about 7,000 annually. With nationally acclaimed programs in a range of fields -- from creative writing, cinema and biology to history, broadcast and electronic communication arts, theatre arts and ethnic studies -- the University’s more than 120,000 graduates have contributed to the economic, cultural and civic fabric of San Francisco and beyond.
