Description

The course covers concepts critical to developing the foundation for a code by taking a tour through the creation of a code for the hypothetical city of Wrightville. Critical first steps include site inventory and community engagement processes for gaining local context on how the code will perform as a basic regulating plan. Ultimately, concepts such as frontage and lot width are critical, and Norm Wright employs nine rules to develop the code using Google Earth, SketchUp, and other software.
