Gulfport SmartCode

The Gulfport Code is the first new FBC to be adopted in communities hit by Hurricane Katrina. While an optional code, an add-on to the city’s existing regulations, it still holds immense potential to serve as a model for other recovering communities. The sheer effort to create the Gulfport code brought the community together under difficult circumstances. It makes many additions to the base SmartCode, in a tactic intended to embed the FBC in local practice.
