Form based codes embody an expressive power.  Exceeding the influence of traditional zoning, this artful place-making tool applies principles and regulations to shape a place’s character, whether neighborhood or city. The resulting high quality urban fabric is achieved by a public process that articulates a community’s unique vision by identifying regulations representing the building blocks of community: form, scale and massing, streets, and public space. 

Planners, architects, urbanists and all those who value well-designed places should attend this event.  The presentation and discussion, led by one of the nation’s leading practitioners of form based codes, will focus on the following topics:


  • Where have form based codes helped shape city place-making?
  • Where do form based codes provide benefits beyond zoning and specific plans?
  • What are the key steps for successful adoption and implementation?


Our guest speaker:

Tony Perez

Director of Form-Based Coding, Opticos Design, Inc.
Instructor, The Form Based Code Institute, CFD District
