By upao - Posted on 11 May 2018

The University Land Use Plan (2018-2027) was approved by the BSU-Board of Regents (BSU-BOR) through BOR Res. No. 2764, s. 2018 during its 186th meeting at CHED, Quezon City on April 13, 2018. The approval of the BSU Land Use Plan signals its implementation by serving as key reference for annual plans and budgets. It will also be used as a basis for fostering local and international linkages.

Among the key land use and improvement proposals are the expansion and improvement of buildings, facilities and equipment; establishment of new land uses, buildings, facilities and equipment; relocation of programs/projects; improvement of mobility and interconnectivity; enhancement of peace and security measures; and restoration of old facilities.

The proposals are designed to consolidate land uses to improve efficiency, strengthen agriculture and allied fields as the University’s core programs, protect environmentally sensitive areas, expand income generating capacity, surface the cultural context of the University’s location through the design of geographic spaces and structures and safeguard the territorial integrity of BSU landholdings .

Spearheaded by the Planning and Development Office , the formulation of the plan involved a series of planning workshops, meetings, consultations, and dissemination of the Land Use Plan draft to different sectors. This process took three years from February 2015 until its finalization in March 2018 and eventually its BOR approval in April 2018.

The plan stemmed from earlier initiatives as early as 1970-1982. Succeeding initiatives were recorded in 1990, 1994, 1999, 2010 and 2012. However, none of the Land Use Plan drafts reached the finalization stage making the March 2018 draft the first BSU Land Use Plan draft to reach the University Board of Regents.//JSTabangcura
