People's Park Housing: Virtual Open House #3

April 17, 2020

Reimagine People's Park with us: Join us for the third of three open houses that are open to all members of the campus and the community. In light of restrictions on public gatherings throughout the State of California, the third public open house for the People’s Park Housing project is being offered online, rather than in-person.

We invite you to click here and participate in this virtual open format.

As part of a comprehensive effort to address student needs, and the challenges facing the campus and its urban neighbors, in May 2018 the University announced plans to redevelop and revitalize People’s Park. Since then, the project has held numerous meetings with stakeholders, presented to student and community groups, and held two public open houses to gather feedback and listen to the community.

This virtual open house will be the final opportunity for public comment during this early design phase. More information on the project, the development of the design, and additional opportunities for public comment will be made available during the environmental review (CEQA) process in late-2020/early-2021.

Feedback received from this virtual open house will be used to inform the ongoing design. Please note that the design team is unable to respond to every comment received, but all comments are welcome and will be considered as part of the design process. The virtual open house will be open for comments until Monday, April 27, 2020.

The Virtual Open House includes four sections: a video overview of the project, an introduction to the project program, updates from the design process, and a brief survey.

  • Open House #1 - Monday, February 10, 2020
    • Focus: Learn about the legacy of People’s Park, envision the potential for transformation, and share potential benefits and concerns.
