Public Notice: Preparation of a Supplemental EIR

UC Berkeley proposes expanding the existing Goldman School of Public Policy and improving the availability of near-campus housing by developing a 37,000 gross square foot academic building and a separate residential building on top of the Upper Hearst Parking Structure located on a portion of University-owned property on the northeastern region of Campus Park.

UC Berkeley has determined that it will prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) tiered from its 2020 Long Range Development Plan (2020 LRDP) Environmental Impact Report to evaluate the potential environmental effects of the project. The SEIR will also analyze the environmental impacts of an increase in campus population beyond levels analyzed in the 2020 LRDP.

UC Berkeley has prepared a Notice of Preparation (NOP) to provide Responsible Agencies, Trustee Agencies and other Interested Parties with a description of the proposed project and to identity potential environmental impacts pursuant to State CEQA requirements. UC Berkeley invites comments on the scope and content of the SEIR. Due to the time limits mandated by State law, the NOP will be circulated for a 30-day review period, which will extend from August 16, 2018, to September 14, 2018. Responses to this NOP must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 14, 2018.
