In 1998, the City and University entered into an agreement to govern campus master planning and off-campus leasing. This agreement marked an important step in maintaining good relations with our neighbors and city government.
In 2003, this agreement was amended (Ordinance 121193) to allow more off-campus leasing and change reporting requirements. This amendment acknowledges the important role the University can play in revitalizing the University District. Read the City’s press release on this important change.
Following a ruling by the Growth Management Hearings Board, the City Council passed a new ordinance (Ordinance 121688), on November 29, 2004, amending the 1998 agreement.
