Form-Based Codes

"Diversity of uses… does offer the decent possibility of displaying genuine differences of content.  Therefore these can become interesting and stimulating differences to the eye, without phoniness, exhibitionism or belabored novelty."

-Jane Jacobs

The use of form-based codes can offer a vision to the entire city and down to the individual property owners.  Instead of being restrictive and basing properties on use, a form-based code can show the possibilities for the future.  Adopting these
 regulations enables the implementation of a community’s vision, hopes, and dreams for desired growth or redevelopment in their city.
