You want the kind of pedestrian-friendly development and vibrant, mixed-use districts that a form-based zoning code is designed to achieve. But you’re not ready to get rid of your traditional “Euclidean” zoning code and map. And you have to admit that the term “transect” makes you kind of nervous! Do you need to make the choice – “To adopt a form-based code or to remain nonconFORMing?” If your community finds itself in this position, the good news is that there is a third choice: You can keep your familiar zoning code and update it, strategically, to incorporate those form-based elements necessary to achieve the design goals that are most important to your community. A city planner and attorney will present practical examples of how you can ReFORM your zoning code rather than replace it.
