ELEMENTS OF A MASTER PLAN

In general, the MIMP lays out a plan for how development will happen over time and regulates development elements such as structure setbacks, height limits, lot coverage, landscaping, open space, parking and transportation. The MIMP defines these elements in three specific components:

  • Development Standards: The development standards address the physical development of a major institution including building height, landscaping, set backs and open space.
  • Transportation Management Plan: The transportation management plan addresses existing and proposed parking, potential traffic impacts, pedestrian and traffic circulation and the hospital’s efforts to reduce traffic impacts and encourage alternate modes of transportation.
  • Development Program: The development program addresses both planned and potential physical development including campus density and the location of open space and planned development.
