For those who are involved in master planning, do you use the standard land use color codes for future land use maps? That is, yellow for single-family residential, red for commercial, purple for industrial, etc? If you do use those standards, is it because you want to maintain consistency, or because it is the industry standard? For those who do not follow that standard, can you tell me why? When does it make sense to deviate and be creative? It seems like those colors are arbitrarily assigned to similarily arbitrary land use categories. Regarding the land use categories, do you also use the standard categories? For instance, is a state-funded university a public land use, or is it an institutional use? I appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks!
