Kevin is a participating faculty member this week for a Form-Based Codes Institute 301 Session in Lansing, MI.

This course covers a checklist for evaluating the effectiveness of a Form-Based Code, an in-depth look at the advantages, disadvantages, and mechanics of mandatory, parallel and floating-zone forms of FBCs; how to structure the coding process, including what must happen before and after the code is drafted; what to keep and what to discard from an existing conventional code; the legal aspects of adopting a FBC i.e. its consistency with the comprehensive plan, adoption mechanics and insulating against potential challenges; and post-adoption implementation.
