University & Innovation District EIR
HELIX is managing grading studies, technical studies, and CEQA documentation, as well as providing input to the Sectional Planning Area (SPA) Plan that would direct the implementation of a four-year University and Regional Technology Park within the Otay Ranch and Eastlake III neighborhoods in the City of Chula Vista. The university will feature academic space, academic support space, physical education facilities, student housing, and parking areas to be sized to serve up to 20,000 full-time equivalent students. The Regional Technology Park is envisioned as a higher-value manufacturing and research park with both independent uses and programmatic links to the university. The 385-acre university site is located south of Hunte Parkway within the Otay Ranch and Eastlake III General Development Plan areas. HELIX is conducting and managing technical studies for biological resources, cultural resources (as shown here in the photo to the left), hazardous materials, geotechnical hazards, hydrology/drainage/ water quality, and traffic. In addition, water supply, sewer service, air quality/GHG, and noise studies will be prepared to support the EIR.
