Code Studio recently began to create a new Development Code and Transportation Plan for the City of Piqua. The project is called CodePIQUA.

CodePIQUA grew out of the Plan It Piqua Comprehensive Plan recommendation to update the current zoning and subdivision regulations. The intent is to put into place development standards that promote neighborhood qualities that enhance existing development and create a sense of a place. The project also includes the creation of a new Transportation Plan with context-sensitive standards for public right-of-way use and improvements.


Code Studio held a multiple day collaborative planning and design workshop for the CodePIQUA project in April. Below are potential development scenarios for key locations in Piqua.

Main St & Wood St Development Scenario

Street Frontage: Activating the sidewalk in a gateway to Downtown

Water St & Spring St Development Scenario

Activating Lock Nine Park: Reinforcing walkability and private development that captures views to the river

Favorite Hill Development Scenario

Housing Options: Neighborhood sensitive options targeting seniors and young families
