Administration of Form-Based Codes

Municipal budgetary woes have increased the urgency to streamline development processes and make the good easy to build — to find a way to do more with less. Form-Based Codes offer a streamlined administrative process. They put the emphasis on creating great and lasting places that attract and retain prosperity within a community. Before switching “operating systems” it is natural to inquire about how the system works, the type of training necessary, and how to maintain and trouble shoot the system. If you are considering switching to a form-based code, or have done so already, this session will provide you with answers to common administrative concerns, examine case studies, discuss design review options, public hearing formats, staff presentations, and role of a town architect. The presenter offers recommendations to ease the transition and streamline the development review process.
