Abstract : Summary: The United States Air Force has a mission in space. This mission is to conduct operations in space for the advancement of men's knowledge and capabilities. Therefore, future missions of many Air Force bases will require the consideration of space support facilities. City planning as a profession is developing rapidly. The 'state of the art' as practiced in the civilian community is more advanced than as practiced by the Air Force. The techniques, procedures, and standards used by the city planning profession in developing civilian master plans can be of assistance to Air Force master planning. They are required tools for successful development. Land use standards, in particular, are needed to permit personnel responsible for Air Force planning to check existing facilities for adequacy and to allow computation of total land requirements for new bases and facilities. The air Force lacks trained professional planners. To overcome this shortage, there is a need for an adequate Air Force manual on master planning encompassing the latest techniques, procedures and standards. They must be prepared with the thought in mind that most persons using them for the development of an Air Force base master plan are not formally educated city planners. (Author)
