In a statement to the campus and general community on Dec. 13, San Diego State University President Adela de la Torre shared that the university will begin moving its plans for campus growth through the CEQA process in early 2019. 

The university has also established a new email list to share periodic updates to keep on and off campus community members informed of timely announcements and other news. The form to sign up for news updates is available online: 

The full statement from de la Torre is as follows: 

As the semester draws to a close, I take this opportunity to update you once again on our plans for Mission Valley.

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Process

In early 2019, we will begin moving our plans for campus growth through the CEQA process. As you may know, CEQA requires open and transparent public engagement and input on various topics and issues.

First among those are what technical areas should be studied in the University’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The EIR is intended to inform the public and its officials of the environmental consequences of decisions before they are made. This is done through a publicly distributed EIR Notice of Preparation (NOP), which is then followed by public “scoping meetings” where community members can give documented feedback and suggestions. To maximize public input, we will be hosting two NOP scoping meetings in 2019.

Please look for an email in January about dates, times, and locations of these scoping meetings. I hope you will attend and share your suggestions for consideration in our EIR.

The NOP announcement is an exciting and important first step as together we plan and develop SDSU’s proposed Mission Valley campus.

Share Your Comments and Ask Questions 

In the meantime, we want to make sure we take in and respond to all of your feedback and any questions you have. To do so, we have created a new email account that is checked daily by our Mission Valley team. Please send questions or comments to mvcomments@sdsu.edu.

Email List for News Updates

We have also established this new email list to share periodic updates that will keep you informed of timely announcements and other news as we progress. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to sign up by visiting the Mission Valley website: https://sdsu.edu/mvnewsletter
 
Together, we will build a lasting legacy for our faculty, staff, students, and region. This is only the beginning!

All the best,
 
Adela de la Torre
San Diego State University President
