President Soraya M. Coley has established a broad-based campus committee to provide input as Cal Poly Pomona and FivePoint Holdings, LLC partner to re-envision and develop the site formerly known as the Lanterman Developmental Center.
The ultimate vision is to transform the site into a vibrant university-oriented, mixed-use community that supports the academic mission, generates revenue and provides benefits to the surrounding area.
The committee includes representatives of the university’s faculty, students, staff and administrators and has been charged with the following objectives:
- Serve in an advisory role to President Coley and the FivePoint development team during the Master Planning process;
- Build upon the university’s stated objectives in the original Request for Proposals to define the overarching goals and objectives for the site;
- Identify applicable Cal Poly Pomona Master Plan goals to determine long-term campus housing needs (e.g. upper division, graduate, faculty, staff etc.) and facility/student needs at Lanterman (e.g. instruction space, labs, administrative etc.);
- Ensure that the development furthers the university’s mission;
- Synthesize varied interests to act as a singular voice for the university community;
- Facilitate interactions with and receive input from key university stakeholder groups;
- Work with the university leaders and the FivePoint development team to represent the shared vision and merits of the proposed project; and
- Participate in community and committee workshops for the Master Plan (six to eight workshops over nine to 12 months).
The committee will begin its work in early November, co-chaired by Ben Quillian, special advisor to the president; and Danielle Manning, vice president for administrative affairs and chief financial officer. The committee will begin receiving input from the broader campus through a series of open meetings. Notices of the upcoming meetings will be shared with the campus to invite participation.
