(4) Normal Community Growth. Underlying all the
above aspects of the Community Framework approach
for Fort Plains is the broad concept of modeling the com-
munity development on normal patterns of civilian com-
munity growth. The Community Activity Centers and
other community facilities are sited to form activity cen-
ters which are like typical centers of commerce and
activity in civilian communities, such as the main street,
village green, shopping mall, or neighborhood center.
The proposed facilities follow good civilian models of
physical organization, of mix and variety of activities
located together, and of the appropriate variety of scales
for different functional spaces. In this way, the center
will not be dominated by large monolithic institutional
facilities and can provide appropriate settings for a wide
range of activities.
