DOWNTOWN FORM-BASED CODE
Challenge: Rethink the zoning for five Downtown neighborhoods, with a focus on urban rules that promote revitalization, mixed uses and walkability.
- A form-based code that reflects the varying character of the 5 neighborhoods.
- A highly-illustrative document that is easy to use and administer.
- A code adoption that occurred smoothly due to the high level of communication during the process.
