Illustrative Master Plan
MASTER PLAN UPDATE
California State University Cal Poly Pomona
The Master Plan Update addresses short and long-term issues for the institution including enrollment growth, reduction of state funding, and infrastructure improvements. The plan envisions a compact academic core and enhanced student engagement. It expands the opportunities for the polytechnic experience. Pedestrian connections with the core campus and to campus edges are strengthened and made more accessible. Pedestrian safety is addressed through an expansion of open spaces and connecting pedestrian ways, public-private partnership financed infrastructure improvements, and bicycle pathways. The University’s commitment to greenhouse gas reduction and sustainability is a foundation for the Master Plan.
