Master Plan

Department of Landscape Architecture + School of Architecture

College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs
The University of Texas at Arlington


The community-based master plan for the Polytechnic Heights neighborhood was developed in collaboration among professors and students from the architecture and landscape architecture departments at UTA. Prof. Dennis Chiessa and his students from the Spatial [in] Justice course conducted multiple community meetings and research in Polytechnic Heights during Fall 2020. With the data and findings collected from Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, Dr. Joowon Im and her students from Environmental Landscape Planning and Design course created a community-based master plan in collaboration with Prof. Chiessa and his students from Architecture Design Studio II.


The master plan on display is a copy of the work in progress designed to receive feedback and insights from the faculty, staff, and students at the Texas Wesleyan University and the community at large in the spring of 2021.

A final version of the plan will be posted soon.
