Integrating Sustainable Design In Form-Based Codes

Form-Based Codes are, by definition, sustainable. Their capacity to produce compact, mixed-use urbanism makes them an essential tool in efforts to create sustainable communities. The 2&1/2 hour recorded webinar covers the key elements of sustainable design that may be regulated by form-based codes, including renewable energy systems, stormwater and wastewater conservation, urban agriculture, green roofs, landscaping, community-based transportation, and others. Instructors use specific case studies to illustrate these elements, drawing upon their work from across the country. They also discuss effective community participation strategies that advance sustainable design in form-based codes.
