The McMurdo Master Plan 1.0 was completed in March of 2013. The purpose of that original plan was to provide an in-depth first look at the current layout of McMurdo, identify both constraints and opportunities for future redevelopment, and create a basic plan to serve as a guide for that development. That initial plan was intended to serve as a Master Plan "starting point" to generate substantive discussion. Not only did it generate that discussion, it also resulted in a great deal of excitement. Since Master Plans are meant to be updated in light of evolving technologies and new requirements, this version was created.
