A master plan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. Master planning is about making the connection between buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments. A master plan includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for a site’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use. It is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions
Planning is required for almost any great job, and according to studies in all professions, the most admired and respected experts in the field spend more time planning than anything else. To be a master planner requires the utmost expertise in the field of architecture, as well as a coordinated effort by a team of engineers ready to respond to the call at any time. This takes a great amount of cooperation and organization, and results in a team with great communication skills.
