East Campus Entry Area Study

Project Info

University of California, Riverside
Completed in 2005

The goals for the ECEAS were to emphasize the university-community interface by placing public-oriented facilities near the campus front door, enhance the east-west connection and support redevelopment of University Avenue as a main street. The plan also seeks to clarify circulation and signage and take advantage of open space opportunities.

Building upon prior planning work, the team of Walker Macy and Hacker refined planning efforts related to the UCR East Campus Entrance. The ECEAS included a public involvement process to ensure that the concerns and insights of community organizations, leaders, neighbors, city staff and transportation agencies were integrated with campus objectives. The ECEAS respects the unique natural characteristics found within this area of the campus, while simultaneously creating a series of development sites necessary to support a sense of campus pride and civic vitality for UC Riverside.
