Form-Based Codes

Avoiding Common Form-Based Code Mistakes

Dan Parolek’s article “Avoiding Common Form-Based Coding Mistakes, Part 1” was published in the May 2013 issue of Zoning Practice, a publication put out by the American Planning Association. Read the synopsis from the Zoning Practice website below.

One of the biggest zoning-related stories over the past ten years has been the rise of form-based zoning. This issue tackles some common misconceptions about Form-Based Coding and highlights some common mistakes communities have made when trying to integrate Form-Based Coding concepts with existing regulations. This issue is the first of a two-part series on the topic. The second part will be released in June.
