Harbor-UCLA Master Plan meeting

About 60 community members and hospital staff participated in the last Harbor-UCLA master planning session on June 25, in which the final draft of the strategic plan for the 72-acre campus was unveiled.

The goal of the new plan is to more efficiently provide health care services, revitalize the neighborhood, and enhance business, education and job opportunities for the community. To that end the long-term plan substantially reconfigures the campus.

For example, mental health, outpatient and specialty care services that have been housed in bungalows throughout the campus will be consolidated into three new buildings. The plan also increases the availability of campus parking, expands hospital beds, and incorporates new retail space. Notably, the master plan includes community walking paths, roof top gardens, and green open space for recreational community use. Lastly, it also consolidates the LA BioMedical Institute bungalows into a smaller footprint allowing for additional growth on the campus. Over the last year, community engagement throughout the master planning process has resulted in significant alternations and ultimately in a plan that better meets the needs of the community, patients, and staff it serves. Following the presentation, community members provided further comments and asked questions about the final plan. The materials shared at the community meeting are available below:

The next phase in the process is implementation. Once the Harbor-UCLA master plan is finalized, the County of Los Angeles will begin its own planning process to determine how they will finance the redevelopment of the campus over the next 20 years.
