Long Range Development Plan

We are starting a year-long effort to update the physical plan for the Leeward campus for the next 20 years.  This long-range plan was last updated in 1995, so 2012 provides a rare opportunity to get involved in how the campus will look and function in the years to come!

A Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) is a master plan that is used to guide the form and character of a campus, linking the physical planning process with programmatic and institutional goals of the college.

Long Range Development Plan Workshop #3 is scheduled for Wednesday, October 3, 2012 in GT 105. Two sessions are offered: 12:00pm-1:00pm and 1:00pm-2:00pm; walk-ins welcome anytime!

At this 3rd workshop of the LRDP project, the planning team will present alternative concepts for the future Leeward campus. It will be a great opportunity to for the Leeward campus community hear straight from the planners and to comment on the different alternatives.

The College’s current LRDP was last updated in 1996 and approved by the UH Board of Regents in 1999, with minor modification made in 2010 and 2011. In December 2011, the College received funding from the UH Office of Capital Improvements to update the campus’ LRDP. 

The LRDP update is coming at a critical juncture for the College due to the significant programmatic and physical resource changes that are occurring.  Among the many changes to be addressed in the LRDP include:

  • unprecedented growth in student enrollment
  • relocation of the University of Hawai‘i West O‘ahu campus
  • the addition of the Education Building
  • the direct and indirect impacts associated with the Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project
  • renewable energy options
  • the addition of a permanent campus facility in Wai‘anae

The project is being coordinated by Helber Hastert & Fee Planners.
