What We Shared

On January 25, 2017, Stanford held a community forum at the Mitchell Park Community Center to inform our neighbors in the region about our application to the County of Santa Clara for approval of an update to our campus land use permit. The forum provided an opportunity for the community to learn more about the 2000 General Use Permit that currently governs land use approvals on the Stanford campus, our application for an updated 2018 General Use Permit and to ask questions, share feedback and communicate priorities. Participants were free to spend as much or as little time as they preferred and were able to talk to knowledgeable Stanford staff who could answer questions on a variety of topics.

The Process

The following graphic illustrates the General Use Permit application review process, highlighting four key points at which members of the community can provide feedback directly to the County of Santa Clara. In addition, Stanford's outreach and engagement efforts with the community will be occurring on an ongoing basis throughout the review process.
