Cal Poly Recirculates Grand Avenue Housing Project Environmental Report
Cal Poly is recirculating the draft environmental impact report for its First-Year Student Housing South project proposed for the campus’s Grand Avenue entrance and has announced that the public now will have until March 31 to comment on the draft. Cal Poly announced in May 2013 that it plans to build an approximately 1,430-bed student housing project on land that is now two large surface parking lots at Grand Avenue and Slack Street. Cal Poly is planning to present the project to the CSU board of trustees for approval in May. Construction is tentatively set to start in 2015, and the new residences are slated to open at the start of the 2018-19 academic year.
