WHEREAS, the mission of SDSU is to provide a well-balanced, high quality education for undergraduate and graduate students, and to contribute to knowledge and to solve problems through excellence and distinction in teaching, research, and service; and

WHEREAS, the proposed Plaza Linda Verde project at SDSU will develop a clear entrance to the campus, designed as an integrated living experience comprised of green living spaces as well as more on-campus student housing options, employment, shopping, dining, and parking opportunities that will create an environment that greatly enhances the student experience at SDSU; and

WHEREAS, the proposed Plaza Linda Verde project at SDSU reflects sound principals of smart growth planning such as alternative transportation options, pedestrian orientation, high density, mixed-use development and education; and

WHEREAS, the student housing options within the proposed Plaza Linda Verde Project at SDSU will offer amenities and services that are affordable and essential for students needs; and
