2007 List of Proposals

Neutra House

In 1979, the Neutra family and Cal Poly Pomona came to an agreement whereby the Richard and Dion Neutra Research House would become a university educational facility. But the condition of the house and its distance from the campus has impeded the university’s ability to truly benefit from this gift. While this program does not currently receive general fund support, it does cost the university time and energy in addressing its declining condition. If the university does not absolve itself of the Neutra House, it may be liable for extraordinary facility costs in the future. The committee recommends that the College of Environmental Design explore all options to transfer ownership of the Neutra House to an organization that can give it the attention that this landmark richly deserves.
