UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY EAST GATEWAY DISTRICT PLAN

The East Gateway District Master Plan provides a detailed analysis of a northeast area of Utah State University’s Logan campus. The plan addresses the complex needs and demands required to accommodate campus growth. A range of ideas and options were explored, establishing what uses and activities should remain, what future uses and functions should be added, and how they should be configured and coordinated to create a complete district as part of a unified campus. The plan addresses current and future needs, utilizing a robust outreach process for input and direction. The plan identifies priorities for future development, improves efficiency and clarity of land uses and zones, and includes strategies to enhance the image and character of the USU campus and to strengthen the district’s connection to the academic core of campus.

The Master Plan attempts to extend existing campus patterns into the District, providing a coherent and unified pattern that also recognizes the city and community grid, and incorporating a mix of academic and administrative uses, parking structures, mixed use/retail and great public spaces to create a distinguishable district that is nonetheless unified with the campus. The Master Plan also includes new courtyards and quadrangles and incorporates a robust open mix of open spaces and civic destinations that express the “Green Necklace” framework established for the campus as a whole.
