All in Form Based Codes

New Urbanism Blog: The City of Panama Beach, Florida has retained a team lead by Planning Works, LLC and assisted by 180° Design Studio and White & Smith, LLC to prepare an initial assessment of form-based codes for the City. A form-based code is a land development regulation that is based principally on design, rather use, impact, or other aspects of land development.

Kevin Klinkenberg and our panelists will provide their insights on FBCs and context-sensitive street design, as both are key elements for walkable neighborhoods. Come learn the basics of FBCs, how they differ from typical use-based zoning, and potential applications for your community. Both local and national case studies will be discussed. Also learn how new context-sensitive street design standards offer opportunities for communities to rethink how street systems support local development objectives.
