Open Space / Public Space

Air Force Corporate Standards

Preserve native undisturbed open space whenever possible to serve as visual and physical buffers, reduce landscape maintenance, conserve water resources, and protect natural habitat.

Use an integrated design approach to identify and define common areas for public gathering or recreational use. Provide public areas only where functionally required and appropriate for the local climate.

Provide pedestrian-oriented recreational areas, parks, ceremonial areas, and other open space systems such as greenways, corridors, and neighborhood linkages consistent with the base’s Installation Development Plan.

Inside the perimeter fence, provide architecturally compatible privacy walls as required and visually screen unsightly uses. Reflect the scale and materials of adjacent facilities following Installation Facilities Standards (IFS).


Sustainability

Consider and maintain open space as part of the installation’s stormwater system.
