Columbia Pike Plan and Code

City or County: 
Arlington County
State: 
VA

Columbia Pike was the most underdeveloped area in a county that is otherwise built out. Located in an urban county that has seen explosive growth in recent decades, Columbia Pike, (a 3.5-mile urban corridor immediately across the Potomac River from downtown Washington, DC) had seen little development in the past 30 years. County leaders initiated this revitalization effort to bring economic development to the corridor through the creation of a form-based code to foster transit- and pedestrian-oriented infill redevelopment.

Saticoy Wells Community Plan and Code

City or County: 
Ventura
State: 
CA

The Saticoy Wells Community is located at the eastern edge of Ventura, surrounded by farms and hills. Over the past 50 years, the area has largely developed in a suburban pattern. The intent of the plan and code is to foster new growth on about 50% of the still-undeveloped community parcels, reconnecting fractured linkages while encouraging new parks and a variety of building types. This transect-based code includes mandatory, optional, and floating standards to address unique on-the-ground opportunities.
