A Further Review of the California State University's Contra Costa Center. Commission Report 89-9.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
A follow-up report on the California State University's Contra Costa Center, a proposed permanent off-campus center, is presented. The California Postsecondary Education Commission approved the original proposal in 1987, contingent on finding solutions to concerns about transportation access and services to disadvantaged students. The university offers the following: the environmental impact report, a private transportation study, the state university's transportation plan, the plan to serve disadvantaged students, and the question of alternatives. Other actions by the state university and the issue of a full-service campus are addressed. The Commissioners conclude the following: the need for such a campus has been demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt; a permanent center is preferable to other alternatives; and transportation problems are being handled as efficiently as possible. Among the four recommendations are the Commission's approval of this center and the university's need to periodically report to the Commission its positive steps to alleviate the transporation problems. Eight appendices comprise the greater part of the document and include: letters responding to notice of preparation for environmental impact report; responses to draft environmental impact report; residences of surveyed students attending Pleasant Hill Center; transportation planning; service to disadvantaged students; alternatives to proposed project; response to request regarding project; and letters and relevant memoranda. Includes 6 displays. (SM)
