Stanford General Use Permit

Stanford University has requested a second General Use Permit which will govern development at Stanford through 2035.  The University has asked for approval of 2,250,000 net new square feet of facilities, 550 units of housing, and 2,600 student beds, which is estimated to generate an additional 9,610 people on campus.  It is the largest development application ever submitted to the County. 

There is local community concern over the impact Stanford’s growth will have on an already pressing affordable-housing shortage and traffic congestion.  The County is actively working with Stanford on how to mitigate these impacts.
