1. Refer to the Installation Development Plan (IDP) for locations of transit stops and pedestrian and cycling networks; provide appropriately sized sidewalks and bike paths to connect facilities and users to these networks.
  2. Provide amenities such as rain and shade shelters, trees, and benches to encourage and facilitate use of public transportation.
  3. Evaluate the IDP for the current and planned network of roads and optimally develop vehicular access to and from the site.

Design parking areas conforming to existing topography and providing the total parking requirement for the facility. Accommodate all types of vehicles associated with the facility addressing work force, visitors, deliveries, services, and emergencies. Provide a level of quality appropriate for the Facility Group. Connect parking areas to the pedestrian walkway and path system. Comply with ATFP requirements.


Emphasize pedestrian and cycling access to facilities and promote walkability. Use high albedo surfaces to reduce heat island effect. Appropriately provide permeable paving following Installation Facilities Standards (IFS).


In areas at risk to high winds, provide trees with small to medium height and spread to minimize potential debris from wind and storm events and to preserve access and reduce maintenance requirements.
