Abstract

This document is a professional project and academic companion piece

completed to partially fulfill requirements for the attainment of a Masters in City

and Regional Planning at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis

Obispo. The project is the City of King West Broadway Master Plan (Plan). The

Plan was completed over the course of a year for a real-world client (The City of

King) and provides new form-based code recommendations in the Plan Area.

The Plan is included as Appendix A. The companion piece is intended to provide

additional background research that was conducted during the planning process,

but omitted from the final project. In the companion piece, I first explain why I

selected the WBMP for my professional project. Next, I elaborate on the sources

and inspiration for the goals of the project that are listed in the plan including

grant requirements, input from the public, and current planning practices. Finally,

I provide background research and justifications for two parts of the plan that

have little reasoning in the text: mobilehome relocation law and the suggested

development standards.
