The LRDP will be used to paint a "what-if picture" and "analyze a build-out scenario" for the whole campus, which includes a comprehensive look at where housing sites might be.

The city was one of over 40 applicants that responded to broad request from UC Davis for ideas about creating an innovation hub, said Karl Mohr, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Administrative and Resource Management at UCD.
"At the highest level, the decision was made to better connect basic university research with commercial enterprise," Mohr
"There were responses from Dixon, Elk Grove, Oroville and a couple areas in the foothills," said Mohr
A number of these proposals stressed their physical proximity to UCD
The City of Davis itself turned in a proposal.
"There were a number of proposals suggesting a 'virtual' approach (using the Internet), without even a physical location" for the hub," said Mohr
"There may be multiple threads coming out of this, and this may not turn out to be a single initiative."
staff may decide to pursue, for example, a "virtual" hub as well as a physical one - or to create several different hubs connecting business to different fields of UC Davis science.
"Food science is an obvious one, but they could be in biotechnology or in the connection between human and animal health because of our expertise in veterinary sciences, or in other areas of expertise," said Mohr
"A lot of the proposals talked about real estate.
It's not clear that real estate is a problem - UC Davis
has plenty of that."
said the school is now sifting through the proposals.
