It serves as a roadmap for decision-making, providing a clear vision for the future of the city or region. The plan is typically created by urban planners and city officials in order to guide the city’s development over a period of time, usually 10-20 years.

Who is the Master Plan template for?

This master plan template is designed to help urban planners and city officials create a plan to guide the growth and development of a city or region. It provides a comprehensive framework for defining and organizing objectives, setting measurable targets (KPIs), and implementing projects to achieve those targets. The template can be used to create a master plan that is tailored to the specific needs of a city or region.

1. Define clear examples of your focus areas

A master plan must include clear focus areas that define the major objectives of the plan. These focus areas should be specific and measurable, and should reflect the current needs of the city or region. Examples of focus areas may include Smart and Sustainable City, Healthy and Resilient City, and Inclusive and Engaged City. Each focus area should have a list of objectives that are related to that focus area.

2. Think about the objectives that could fall under that focus area

Objectives are the desired outcomes of a focus area. They should be specific and measurable, and should be achievable within the master plan timeline. Examples of objectives may include objectives such as increasing energy efficiency, enhancing mobility options, improving air quality, and promoting healthy living.

3. Set measurable targets (KPIs) to tackle the objective

A key performance indicator (KPI) is a measurable target that can be used to track progress towards an objective. It should be specific and measurable, with an initial and target value. Examples of KPIs may include reducing energy consumption, increasing bike ridership, reducing air-polluting emissions, and increasing outdoor recreation.

4. Implement related projects to achieve the KPIs

A project (action) is an implementation step that can be taken to achieve a KPI. It should be specific and achievable, and should be related to the KPI. Examples of projects may include implementing smart building technologies, creating more bike lanes, increasing access to public transit, and constructing more parks and open spaces.
