Form Based Codes 101: March 15th 6 PM

What:     Form-Based Codes 101
Thursday, March 15th from 6:00-7:30pm
East Chapel Hill High School, Café Commons Area.
500 Weaver Dairy Road, Chapel Hill, 27514

Description: Form-based codes use physical form, rather than separation of land uses, as their organizing principle. They foster predictable results in the built environment and a high quality public realm. During this session, Lee Einsweiler of Code Studio will describe why communities use form-based codes; the key elements that can be regulated by form-based codes; the process for establishing form; and will provide examples that have been used in other cities.

    What an informative session last night. I hope the Town Council moves further in this direction – and something the 2020 plan should recommend!

    I just reviewed the rather substantial SmartCode document. It’s fascinating and I think its application could work wonders for our community if instituted correctly. I recommend that anyone interested in developing a new system for our zoning dilemma have a look.
