JCPRD Legacy Plan
Modes of Care - Sample
Maintenance Standards for Buildings Recognizing that the Modes of Care used to develop the maintenance standards pertain exclusively to landscape and hardscape issues, it is recommended to develop Building Maintenance Standards. These standards are the established level at which the structure should be maintained to ensure maximum, overall economy consistent with its functional requirement. In this example, buildings or structures should not be allowed to exist at levels beyond a Mode Three unless the structure is scheduled for replacement or extensive renovation.
