Advisory Committee on Campus Transportation and Parking (ACCTP)

reviews policies, plans, capital improvement projects, and both existing and proposed transportation, parking, and circulation programs and services for the UCSC main campus, 2300 Delaware Avenue, and the Coastal Science Campus. The committee should also be engaged in discussions about the transportation-related services at other campus-owned facilities and satellite campuses. Their primary objective is to recommend a sustainable funding model that a) ensures adequate support of programs, services and infrastructure to provide access to campus-owned facilities and b) aligns with campus goals related to sustainability and the limits imposed on campus by the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP).

Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) Planning Committee:

Meeting once a month for 1-1.5 hours, time commitment may increase. 
A Long-Range Development Plan is defined as "a physical development and land use plan to meet the academic and institutional objectives for a particular campus or medical center of higher education. It is updated periodically to meet changing needs and conditions. This process ensures that campus development supports academic, research, and public service goals, while also responding to UC systemwide policies and projected enrollment demand. The LRDP does not constitute a mandate for growth, nor is it a detailed implementation plan for development. It does not commit the campus to carrying out development on any given timeline.
