Welcome to the County of Santa Clara’s official website dedicated to informing residents about its process to review Stanford University’s development proposal and General Use Permit (GUP) application. This proposal, which will add more than 3.5 million square feet of new development and 9,600 people to its campus, is the largest project ever reviewed by the County in its 169-year history.
Santa Clara County is facing unprecedented growth. County Administration is committed to ensuring that this development, if approved, does not negatively impact the surrounding neighborhoods and residents. Any approval of this project would require fully addressing all impacts on traffic congestion, affordable housing and open space.
