In 2003 the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) Regents adopted a Neighborhood Master Plan as part of their Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) in response to projected growth of university students, faculty and staff. The LRDP identified a need to provide housing while minimizing impact on the city of Davis. The West Village Neighborhood Project was one of five proposed in the LRDP, designed to relieve related increases in traffic, pollution, and loss of agricultural land. The Implementation Plan for West Village establishes a detailed framework for design and development based on three core principles: housing availability, environmental responsiveness, and quality of place.
