The York Village Master Plan Report Documents, Final, April 2015
This Master Plan Report document is intended for multiple audiences, each with distinct interests seeking various levels of information and/or guidance - from citizens with a cursory interest to community leaders with broad policy interests and responsibilities to engineers concerned with technical implementation. To address this full range of audiences the Plan document is in a 3-part format. The Summary Report contains visual representations of all key aspects of the plan and summaries of top considerations and recommendations in each topic area and can be printed as a standalone document. For broader and more in-depth information, nine Chapters follow on the topics addressed in the Plan. Back up and technical information can be found in the Appendix.
For best print results: print Comprehensive Report, Summary Report, and Appendix files double sided with landscape orientation, such that even pages are on the left and odd pages are on the right side.
