Woodland District Hybrid Form Based Code

The Code offers exemplary provisions for transitioning an auto-oriented suburban area into a walkable urban and transit-ready environment. Innovations worthy of emulation include the distinct descriptive intents for each of the three designated districts, provisions for proportional compliance and landscape frontage types, and the definitions and illustrations of street intersections types. The simplified land-use list is impressive. The Code offers an excellent example of how land-use and form regulations can be successfully integrated.
