UC Berkeley extends public comment period on land use plan

– The University of California, Berkeley, has announced a 10-day extension of the public comment period for the Notice of Preparation of the new Long Range Development Plan. The comment period will now end on Oct. 10.

The public initially had from Aug. 29 to Monday, Sept. 29, to comment on the scope of environmental studies for the new long-range plan, and the proposed Chang-Lin Tien Center for East Asian Studies.

Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl approved the extension today (Thursday, Sept. 25) following recent requests from Berkeley city officials and members of the community who felt they needed additional time to review the documents.

The new Long Range Development plan will guide the look, feel and academic direction of the campus from 2005 to 2020. For more on the plan, which is in its early stages, go to http://lrdp.berkeley.edu/.

Written public comments on the scope of the plan will be received until 5 p.m. Oct. 10. E-mail comments may be sent to 2020LRDP@cp.berkeley.edu. Address written comments to:
