The Practice and Principles Of Form Based Codes (CM Approved | 1.5)
January 31, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Many presentations about Form-Based Code are like schoolyard lectures on the opposite sex. They sound authoritative. This session will present experience-based, common sense, unadorned information about development regulations based first in form and second in use.
Across the country municipalities seeking to reshape dysfunctional auto-oriented development continue to replace conventional zoning codes with new codes that primarily regulate form and only secondarily regulate use. As the fundamentally different approach of Form-Based Codes becomes more popular, practitioners are looking for credible guidance on how to draft and implement form-based codes in their area. In this webinar, we will share lessons distilled from over a decade of experience implementing and administering municipal form-based development and will introduce community planners to the core principles of Form-Based Codes.
Presenters include: Jason Beske, Principal Planner for Arlington County Virginia, speaking about Form-Based Code administration and process based on his experience in three municipalities, Geoffrey Ferrell, one of the originators of the modern practice of Form-Based Coding whose firm’s codes are in use in numerous municipalities, and Philip Dales, land use attorney at Hyatt & Weber, P.A., in Annapolis, Maryland.
