Guidelines for Planning in Colleges and Universities. Volume 3: Physical Plant Planning, Land Use, and Traffic.
Pinnell, Charles; Wacholder, Michael
The third of five volumes concerned with higher educational planning is divided into two distinct sections--(1) land use planning, and (2) traffic planning. The first section commences with certain definitions and interpretations which are meant to overcome any misunderstandings. Actual land use planning process follows and can be identified by six general stages--(1) the informational input concerning the goals of the institutional programs, financial capabilities of the institution, as well as information regarding its physical requirements, (2) the analysis and interaction of the various planning functions, (3) evaluation and selection of design factors, (4) synthesis of the land use plan, (5) detail design and implementation, and (6) the concept of continuous planning. The traffic planning section discusses various techniques which can be utilized to obtain required data in order to develop a traffic plan. Access, internal circulation, and parking are discussed relative to the daily traffic problem. The traffic studies may provide data which will influence other aspects of the total planning process. Likewise, the location of buildings and other traffic generating facilities on a campus will also have a major bearing on the traffic plan. A section of the development of a traffic plan summarizes the total process. (NI)
