The Campus Master Plan is the foundation for the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee
facilities and land resources for the next ten years and beyond. The Campus Master
Plan provides the foundation for the places for our campus community to learn, teach,
research, and experience the university and natural environments. The Campus Master
Plan outlines policies for responsible stewardship of land resources and sustainable
development that supports the overall mission and Strategic Plan of USF Sarasota-Manatee.
Campus Master Plan Process
Campus planning in the State University System is governed by Chapter 1013.30, Florida Statutes and Florida Board of Governors Regulations, Chapter 21. USF Sarasota-Manatee is committed to implement, maintain and update its Campus Master Plan using an inclusive and comprehensive approach that goes beyond these minimum requirements to engage the campus community, host communities and governmental agencies in the plan development process.
USF Sarasota-Manatee is responsible to implement, maintain and update its Campus Master Plan as an independent institution within the University of South Florida System. The Campus Master Plan is subject to approval by the USF Sarasota-Manatee Campus Board, the USF System Board of Trustees and the Florida Board of Governors.
Campus Master Plan Context Area
Florida Statutes require that USF Sarasota-Manatee identify a context area around the University wherein on-campus development may impact local public facilities, services, and natural resources, and conversely, where off-campus development may impact university resources and facilities The USF Sarasota-Manatee 2000-2010 Campus Master Plan identified the University Context Area and was used for the analysis of university growth impacts leading to the Campus Development Agreement.
Campus Development Agreement
Florida Statutes require the Campus Master Plan to evaluate whether the proposed campus development creates impacts on public facilities and services such as roads, utilities, parks and recreation. As a result of the 2000-2010 Campus Master Plan, the University entered into a Campus Development Agreement with Manatee County.
