IMPLEMENTATION                                                      Aerial Perspective from the West
A high-level summary of building and site costs were
established as part of the Facilities Master Plan. Imbedded
in the recommendations are suggestions for prioritization.
However, the Facilities Master Plan is an opportunity plan, not
an implementation plan. The plan identifies triggers that are
impacted by future change and consequently suggests elements
needed to accommodate that change. An integrated approach
to the Facilities Master Plan has allowed the planning team to
methodically coordinate facility improvements with parking
improvements, transportation initiatives, and pedestrian amenities.

REGIONAL CONDITIONS
MCC’s campus, located 15 minutes east of downtown Hartford,
Connecticut, is generally bounded by I-384 on the north,
Hillstown Road on the west, Wetherell Street on the south, and
Bidwell Street on the east. Several regional conditions were
analyzed, providing a baseline context upon which defensible
master plan recommendations at the site scale could be made.
Regional conditions analyzed include:




                                                                                                           T

Regional Landuse + Transportation
Transportation and access routes to MCC’s Campus were
generally analyzed at the regional scale to understand MCC’s
influence on the surrounding context and landuses. Regional
considerations include:

SITE CONDITIONS
Because of the commuter-oriented nature of MCC’s campus
and the infrastructure necessary to support vehicular traffic, the
analysis of existing conditions at the site scale focused primarily
on site circulation, parking, access and stormwater issues.
Parking utilization provided through the College was taken after
the first six weeks of class. Considerations have accounted for
additional student demand during the first six weeks. Specific

FRAMEWORK
Based on the comprehensive analysis phase, a data-informed
framework plan for MCC’s campus was developed to identify
protection areas and areas appropriate for future campus
development at the site scale. Considerations embedded in the
framework plan include:

Utilities
• Site utilities mapped include water, sanitary sewer,
    stormwater and electric
• Two significant Utility Easements traverse campus, one
    north of the Lowe Building and one east of Lot B              Utilities
• Future building footprints should avoid utility easements to
    avoid excessive cost incurred by re-routing utilities

Wetland, Stormwater, and Water Protection
• Two significant stormwater treatment elements book-end
   the northwest and southeast corners of campus
• Wetlands northwest of the Lowe building are regulated and
   should be protected
• The wet pond southeast of the bandshell plays an important
   role in the health of the South Fork of the Hockanum River
   and should also be protected from development
                                                                  Wetlands, Stormwater and Water Protection
Woodland + Open Space
• Several areas of significant deciduous (shown in light green)
   and coniferous (shown in dark green) trees exist on campus
   and should be protected where possible
• Open spaces including baseball, soccer, and recreation fields
   should also be protected from future development

Slope Constraints
• Several areas with slopes exceeding 12% exist on campus,
    providing challenging development conditions and the
    potential for significant earthwork if development occurs
                                                                  Woodland + Open Space

    • Preserve and Enhance key view corridors
    • Consider proximity to existing programs for future buildings
        and parking expansion areas.

ENROLLMENT GROWTH + SPACE NEEDS
Projected enrollment growth identified in the 10-year planning
horizon of the Educational Master Plan is driving significant
academic, support, and auxiliary space needs growth. As part
of the planning process, several alternative fit scenarios were
tested on the framework plan to understand the impact that
an additional 145,000 Gross Square Feet (GSF) would have
on MCC’s campus. Scenario considerations included: campus

architectural character, code requirements, synergy, public
interface, feasibility, and feedback from the campus community.
Scenarios tested included:
• Organic Growth
• Multi-Functional Building                                         Organic Growth Scenario

• Renovate around “Centers” with Critical Mass

A growth strategy encompassing components of each scenario
was vetted with and preferred by MCC leadership and
committees.

Embedded in an enrollment growth is a need for additional
parking resources to serve the population. In addition to
academic, support, and auxiliary space needs, an additional

    PRIORITIZATION OF INITIATIVES
    A series of academic initiatives were vetted with MCC leadership
    and advisory committees as part of the Educational Master Plan.
    A prioritized list was developed based on several strategic factors
    stating that initiatives should:
    • Have the highest level of support
    • Align with statewide goals of jobs and the economy
    • Have the greatest chance for funding and success




T
    • Match the strategic vision and be a cultural fit with MCC

    Initiatives included as part of the Educational Master Plan, and
    encompassing 69,000 GSF of the projected campus-wide need
    of 145,000 GSF outlined above are:

Site Recommendations
Changes to circulation routes in and around the North Loop
Road area should be considered as Lot B is rebuilt. This

conceptual layout shows 775 new parking spaces in Lot B, a net
gain of 196 spaces over the existing lot.

The Re-alignment of Great Path Drive will allow for easier
vehicular access to parking and greater separation between
vehicles and pedestrians. Specific implementation strategies
include:
1. Extend and re-align Main Street/Great Path Drive to utilize




              D
     existing pedestrian path alignment
2. Minimize disturbance to woodland + topography
3. Improve vehicular flow with additional entry points
4. Re-align service access to loading
5. Provide accessible and faculty parking at GPA
6. Improve pedestrian entry
7. Allow for stormwater management and snow storage
8. Provide dedicated pedestrian connections, minimizing
     conflict between vehicles and pedestrians
9. Locate accessible parking stalls in bays closest to the front
     door

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT
Community Colleges across the country are creatively
incorporating stormwater management techniques into their
campus environments. To specifically address stormwater needs
for MCC, rainfall data was obtained from the Utah Climate
Center (UCC) for the city of Manchester for the last 100 years.
From this data, stormwater quality and quantity targets were
suggested for MCC’s campus.




                                                                                                                                  T
The quality of stormwater leaving a watershed is at its highest
                                                                   Parking Lot Infiltration Systems
when the land is in its pre-developed state. To accomplish these
goals and manage 91.3% of all rainfall events, it was determined
that MCC can treat the 1.25” rainfall event for quality, and
the 100-year event for quantity with only a slight increase in
infrastructure.

Specific stormwater goals for MCC include:
• Improve the quality of water leaving campus
• Reduce heavy metals and sediments
• Infiltrate where possible
• Recharge the groundwater
• Treat stormwater where it falls
                                                                   Existing Downspout Retrofits

• Allow stormwater to be a visible asset

Several implementable stormwater management techniques
recommended in the Facilities Master Plan include:
• Parking lot infiltration systems
• Existing downspout retrofits
• Formal infiltration planters
