Media Release

Compton Unified School District is proud to be a collaborative partner in the Charles Drew University/MLK Wellness Collaborative. The Wellness Campus is a 12.8-acre development consisting of the former Lincoln Elementary School site. The project site will be transformed into a safe, vibrant, transit-oriented, health, education, and wellness campus for the Willowbrook and surrounding communities. The Collaborative is hosting a series of community input design meetings, called "charettes." Please see the flier below for more information on the next meeting.

The concept for the Wellness Campus builds upon and complies with the Willowbrook Transit Oriented District Specific Plan (Specific Plan). The community outreach for the Specific Plan was conducted from 2014 to 2017, and it was extensive and received robust community input. In accordance with the Specific Plan, the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science’s (CDU) Campus Vision Plan was created in 2019. Both the Specific Plan and the CDU Vision Plan are two primary components of the Wellness Campus project.
