This note presents an improved formulation of the hierarchical facility location-allocation problem. It is a generalized model in the sense that the rules for allocating demand types to facility types are general and the 'successively inclusive', successively exclusive' and 'locally inclusive-successively exclusive' allocations that have appeared in the literature are special cases of this model. The objective of the model is to minimize the total user cost - as it should be for public facility location problems. By appropriately setting the cost coefficients we obtain the respective models.
