15.5.B General Standards

1.  Only property owners with properties zoned the EC or MC District are required to submit an IMP.

2.  Satellite campuses of the same institution require an individual IMP regardless of the zoning of the satellite  campus. However, if there are functional linkages between the main campus and a satellite campus, both Institutional Master Plans shall be submitted simultaneously and the functional connection included as part of the submittals.

3.  Only those properties owned by the institution can be included in the Institutional Master Plan boundaries. In addition, those Institutional Master Plan boundaries shall be consistent with those shown on the adopted Future Land Use Plan of the City’s Master Plan. As institutions acquire property, they shall first amend the Master Plan to reflect such land use and then rezone such property to the EC or MC District through the zoning map amendment process.

4.  A campus is defined as contiguous area of land constituting and making up the grounds of a medical or education institution containing the main uses of the hospital or university, and functioning as a connected campus. In determining the boundaries of a campus, the entire area may be separated by public rights-of-way or by individual parcels not owned by the institution.
