Code drafting and design standards for contextual zoning policy often come in the form of a "form-based code." Citing standards and design guidelines from SmartCode and The Form-Based Code Guide, this first of several courses introduces the novel approach that Norm Wright has developed in drafting hybrid and context-based zoning. The method uses an iterative, testable model developed with low-cost tools that create amazing code scenarios for those who are able to "Do It Yourself." If you are a novice with little knowledge of form-based codes but with an interest in creating potentially award wining code, then this is the course for you.
