Campus Plan
MARCH 17, 2011
APRIL 15, 2011 – GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY LEADERS PRESENTED the opening case for the university’s 2010-2020 campus plan before the District of Columbia Zoning Commission April 14.
Last night’s hearing kicked off a public process likely to take several months as supporters and opponents argue their cases about the plan. The Zoning Commission will rule after all parties have commented.  
Under D.C. law, Georgetown must file a campus plan every 10 years to outline future Main Campus and Medical Center infrastructure projects and development.
SIGNIFICANT COMMITMENTS
“The elements of our campus plan demonstrate Georgetown’s fundamental commitments to being a good citizen,” President John J. DeGioia told the commission Thursday night. “[Our] commitments are significant and have been made specifically in response to dialogue with our neighbors.”
DeGioia spoke at the hearing along with a university team of senior administrators and expert witnesses.
Georgetown’s plan, including amendments to the original filings, includes the following commitments:
A voluntary maximum on Main Campus enrollment and continuation of current limits on undergraduate and medical students
Locates 1,000 School of Continuing Students students to an off-campus location by Dec. 31, 2013
Creates 250 beds for undergraduate students, either at the heart of campus or in an off-campus location outside of immediate residential neighborhoods
Eliminates any request for more parking
Constructs an internal loop road to improve traffic flow in and around campus and get buses off neighborhood streets
RESPONDING TO CONCERNS
Georgetown’s plan also includes a handful of new projects that would enhance on-campus academic and recreational spaces, including pedestrian-friendly walkways, construction that would allow buses to turn around on campus and renovations to the Medical Center.
The new plan also carries over some projects not completed from the 2000 plan, including an addition to Lauinger Library, the renovation of the New South building for student space and construction of a new athletic training facility on campus.
All projects are contained within the existing campus boundaries, which have been in place since 1966.
The 2010-2020 campus plan reflects more than two years of conversations with the university community and local residents, including deliberate efforts to respond to concerns about enrollment, off-campus student life, safety and congestion in surrounding neighborhoods.
THOUGHTFUL PARTNER
“[The plan] conveys our deep and enduring commitment to working with our neighbors and the city as a thoughtful and reasonable partner, as we have for the past 222 years and as we will for the next 222 years,” DeGioia said.
