Campus Master Plan

Since 2013, Saint Mary’s College has undergone an extensive on-campus engagement process with students, faculty, staff, and Brothers to fully understand current and future facility needs, mobility enhancements, and sustainability goals. The recently adopted institutional Strategic Plan is the culmination of these and other planning efforts and identifies the highest priority projects needed to ensure that the College remains the West’s leading Catholic university. These highest priority projects are reflected in the draft Campus Master Plan. The document outlines a strategy for addressing needs identified in academic and religious buildings, faculty and staff spaces, student amenities, on-campus housing, athletic facilities, open space areas, roads and pathways, and infrastructure.

The Campus Master Plan can be used to guide work in stages over the next 15 years (2015–2030). Coordination and collaboration between Saint Mary’s College, the Town of Moraga and public agencies will continue during this time,

Ongoing communication between donors, College stakeholders, the community and our constituents will be essential, both to the success of the Campus Master Plan and our response to inputs, changing conditions and emerging technologies.

In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Town of Moraga has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR), for the Saint Mary’s College Campus Master Plan, a comprehensive plan to guide development and improvements on the Saint Mary’s College Campus through 2030. The DEIR has a 45-day public comment period that began on November 2, 2016 and will conclude on December 16, 2016.

Next Steps:

The Town of Moraga Planning Commission is receiving comments from members of the public on the accuracy and adequacy of the environmental information presented in the DEIR prior to the end of the public review period on December 16, 2016.

After the conclusion of this 45-day public review period, Town staff will prepare written  responses to all comments, received as submitted on the Draft EIR. It is anticipated that the Final EIR will be published in February 2017. The final step of the process is for the Town to conduct public hearings on the certification of the EIR and adoption of the Campus Master Plan
