Learn more about form-based codes at a workshop near you in April (seven dates and locations below)!
The workshops are based on a recently published guidebook by MiCNU. A form-based code is an alternative to conventional zoning code and is based on the type of development a community envisions and desires with a focus on the physical form of a building and how it relates to the street and adjacent buildings.
With physical design and walkability a important asset of 21st century communities, several Michigan communities have either moved to or are looking at a form-based code system in an effort to create a more attractive, walkable environment.
