Working closely with local residents and county government, Stanford is seeking an updated General Use Permit that will guide how the University uses its land and addresses housing, traffic and environmental concerns. This is an opportunity for Stanford and its neighbors to plan for a future of education, discovery and community.
The proposed General Use Permit will keep development within existing academic boundaries and does not propose development in the foothills. It proactively addresses housing needs by authorizing new on-campus housing and manages traffic by expanding successful transportation programs.
Commitment to Community
“As Stanford considers the facilities that will be needed in the coming years for our teaching, research, and health care missions, we intend to work closely with the community, being sensitive to the concerns of our neighbors and committed to contributing positively to our region's quality of life.”
~ Marc Tessier-Lavigne, President, Stanford University
