The Practitioner's Approach to Infrastructure Master Planning: The State of the Art

by Sigurd Grava, Columbia Univ, New York, NY, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Infrastructure for Urban Growth

Abstract: Infrastructure master planning is still a disjointed practice, but recent empirical work provides a base from which coordinated efforts, tying together the various sectors, are possible. For high density districts, where service shortages are a chronic problem, a systematic integration of inventories, diagnosis, establishment of criteria, and positive programs is advocated. The relevant sectors range across the entire spectrum of infrastructure services and facilities -- from outdoor sitting space to vehicular operations to communications linkages.
