Driehaus Form-Based Codes Award 2013
Sponsored by FBCI with the generous support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust
The Board of Directors of the Form-Based Codes Institute is pleased to announce its seventh annual award for achievement in the writing and implementation of form-based codes. Form-based codes are a method of regulating development to achieve specific urban form. They create a predictable public realm primarily by controlling physical form and secondarily by land use.
Entries must be adopted into law by a unit of local government. Codes recently adopted as well as codes adopted in prior years are welcome. Entries should be codes intended to foster built results consistent with a master plan. The Award Jury is looking for codes showing one or both of the following characteristics:
- A code that advances the field of form-based code writing;
- A code that shows strong built results and "lessons learned".
There is no entry fee. Anyone is eligible to submit a legally adopted form-based code. However, if a current jury member, or member of a jury member's firm or organization are, or were, part of a code-writing team or a participant in the design, writing, adoption, or implementation process, that code is ineligible for review in the 2013 program.
Award winners will be recognized May 29, 2013 during a session called Today's Best Form-Based Codes, at the Congress for the New Urbanism's twenty-first annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. The planners and officials associated with the winning codes are invited to participate in this session to discuss their codes in detail.
Submissions must be received by FBCI no later than Wednesday, April 3, 2013. Entrants are advised to use a mailing service that guarantees delivery date.
NOTE: Each submission must include five (5) copies of the Submission Materials Form, six (6) CDs and one (1) hard copy of the code document.
