Who We Are /What We Do
The Stanford Land Use & Environmental Planning (LUEP) office staff have professional expertise in the areas of land use and community planning, environmental regulation and permitting, transportation planning, mapping and spatial analysis, conservation biology, archaeology and historic preservation. We work with partners in LBRE (and other university offices) to secure land use approvals from public agencies and to monitor compliance with permit requirements. LUEP is the lead LBRE office for the Santa Clara County General Use Permit (GUP).
LUEP is responsible for program management of university activities on Stanford lands outside of the central campus, including The Dish area. We serve the specific needs of facilities development related to securing land use permits and entitlements and insuring compliance with local land use regulations. We work with local regulatory agencies to comply with the zoning and other regulations that apply to our lands and advise project planners, builders and users about the processes for obtaining permits and approvals, modifying regulations, and completing necessary environmental assessments. We also work with the local agencies to provide information about Stanford's long-term use of the lands for consideration in the agencies' long-term land use plans (General and Comprehensive Plans).
We catalog and record land-based resources, plan for their protection, and provide advice about land use, development and operations to avoid or minimize impacts to those resources.
We perform studies and analyses to determine suitability and capacity of Stanford's lands to support university activities, and prepare long-term plans and strategies considering the results.
