ZONED APPROACH FOR COLLEGE MASTER PLANS. RESEARCH REPORT, 15.
BULLOCK, THOMAS A.; PASEUR, HERBERT
CENTRAL CHRISTIAN COLLEGE IN BARTLESVILLE, OKLAHOMA ESTABLISHED A FLEXIBLE MASTER PLAN FOR ITS CAMPUS BY USING A ZONED APPROACH SO THAT THE EXACT LOCATION AND SIZE OF BUILDINGS NEED NOT BE ANTICIPATED. THE 200 ACRE SITE WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE ZONES--(1) MAIN CAMPUS, INCLUDING OFFICES, CLASSROOMS, AND DORMITORIES, (2) FACULTY AND MARRIED STUDENTS HOUSING, INCLUDING A PRECOLLEGIATE SCHOOL AND CHURCH, AND (3) PLAYING FIELDS. THE CAMPUS IS ZONED IN STRIPS, ALLOWING EXPANSION IN TWO DIRECTIONS. PARKING LOTS ACT AS BUFFERS AND CAN BE EXPANDED AS ENROLLMENT INCREASES. THE INITIAL ENROLLMENT OF THE COLLEGE WAS 500 STUDENTS. THE ZONING PLAN PERMITS AN ENROLLMENT AS HIGH AS 5,000 STUDENTS. THE REPORT CONCLUDES THAT THE ZONED APPROACH PROVIDES A BROAD FRAMEWORK WITHIN WHICH A COLLEGE CAN GROW AND EXPAND, INTERFERING NEITHER WITH EXISTING BUILDINGS NOR WITH AREAS RESERVED FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS. THE CONCEPT OF ZONING IS JUSTIFIED BY THE AUTHORS AS PROVIDING SITES FOR BUILDINGS WHICH WILL HAVE THE PROPER ATMOSPHERE AND RELATIONSHIP TO EACH OTHER. THIS REPORT ALSO APPEARED IN "AMERICAN SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY", 1958-59. (JP)
