The CIA is seeking approval for its Master Plan from the St. Helena City Council. If the CIA is going to remain a successful, instrumental citizen of St. Helena, it needs Master Plan approval.

The Master Plan has two interconnected components:
(i) Improvements to the Greystone campus to improve resource and spatial efficiencies
(ii) the redevelopment of student housing on Pratt Avenue.

Neither aspect of the Master Plan can happen without the other.

Student housing is truly needed. The CIA is currently undersupplied with housing, and a portion of their housing is unattractive, inefficient and not functional. The CIA is proposing to remove housing and replace it with 123 net new student housing beds that are residential in character.

Pratt Avenue is the CIA’s only viable option for developing the housing that it needs. The Greystone property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and for a multitude of additional reasons – availability of land and considerations around student safety – does not represent a practical alternative to Pratt Avenue.

The CIA has rigorously evaluated all other alternatives, and the Master Plan proposed represents the only viable option for the CIA and its students.

Support of our master plan will allow us to continue to grow and offer more meaningful programming for our students. Thank you!
