Appropriate ways to split the objective?

Urban areas are big you have to split the objective into sectors, if you're taking the whole town/suburb as an objective that needs split up, separate routes of travel and movement plans, sectors of fire, new restrictions and constraints etc. Similar lines of annexation, small scalex1,000,000.

For example you always split up key terrain such as roads, you name it for common references i.e. July Street, ASR Lima, MSR Rhino; you name arc firing lanes, so on, makes it so much more easier.

Is this a good way to do it, via districts with known points? Or should it be in more detail?

No image. And yes, I split objectives when I formulate an assault plan.

Nope. Couldn't see it.

It's splitting Fallujah into districts which are colour-orientated. Further so, applying names to areas and streets.
