Master Plan and Generic Environmental Impact Statement
Developed throughout 2008 and 2009, the Master Plan assessed the Richardson Olmsted Campus buildings and site, adjacent neighborhoods and, with a strong public process, created a plan for long term development of the historic buildings and grounds. The Master Plan was prepared by Chan Krieger Sieniewicz (now NBBJ).
The Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) assessed the potential for significant environmental effects of the Master Plan (such as land use, traffic, air quality, noise, and cultural and historic resources), and identified potential mitigation measures.
