Using Form-Based Codes to Create Vibrant, Walkable Communities
This Smart Growth Network webinar explains how communities are using form-based codes to create vibrant, walkable places.
Chris Zimmerman of the Form-Based Codes Institute and Smart Growth America draws upon his experience in Arlington, Virginia to explain what form-based codes are, how they work and, most importantly, why they matter to planners and public officials who want to create walkable communities.
Arlington County used FBC as part of an effort to transform Columbia Pike from an auto-oriented corridor into a lively Main Street lined with restaurants, retail and attractive public spaces. Chris uses this example to explore the basics of FBC for planners and others who are familiar with the concept and want to learn more.
