The Office of Physical and Environmental Planning at UC Berkeley has released the Final Environmental Impact Report regarding a proposed amendment to the 1990 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP).  

The LRDP must be amended because the Northeast Quadrant Science Safety (NEQSS) Projects entails a net increase in square footage beyond what the LRDP originally allowed. 

The NEQSS Projects include the replacement of Stanley and Old Davis Hall, seismic upgrades of Cory Hall, the Naval Architecture Building and New Davis Hall, and the construction of a new building north of Soda Hall as well as additional parking at the Lower Hearst parking structure. 

The final EIR responds to comments received from the city and the community. It is available at the Physical and Environmental Planning Office, Room 300, 1936 University Ave., Berkeley, CA, 94720-1382. Questions on the FEIR may be addressed to Jennifer Lawrence at 642-7720.
