Support KGI Student Housing Project
On Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m., the Claremont Architectural Commission will meet to discuss the Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) campus housing project. The meeting will be held in the Council Chamber at City Hall, which is located at 207 N. Harvard Ave.
In signing this petition, we support the KGI campus housing project and we encourage the Architectural Commission to approve the development at the meeting on December 14.
The campus housing project will raise the quality of life and the level of academics for KGI students. It will also feature environmentally-friendly aspects, including LEED certification, walkable communities and lower water consumption. Additional parking will accommodate the project and future KGI growth without impacting surrounding neighborhoods.
Additionally, the project will promote revitalization of the area south of the railroad tracks while serving as a catalyst for future growth of the Indian Hill corridor.
The development will support KGI's mission, which is to enrich society with breakthrough approaches to education and translational research in the life sciences.
The KGI School of Applied Life Sciences is dedicated to education and research aimed at translating into practice the power and potential of the life sciences for the benefit of society. The School of Pharmacy is dedicated to the education of innovative pharmacists who will serve the needs of individual patients, the healthcare system, and the bioscience industry.
KGI emphasizes interprofessional collaboration, systematic problem solving, the
safe, efficient, and ethical use of technology and biotechnology, and
personalized patient care.
