Free CPL Webinar: Form-Based Code - From Theory to Practice

Monday, February 7, 2022
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST

In response to the limitations and negative effects of Euclidean zoning practices, Form-Based Code has been proposed as an alternative tool that puts places before land uses, creates more sustainable urban environments, and generates greater economic opportunity. This webinar will help demystify Form-Based Code, explain its benefits, and use local examples to explore how planners can use this tool in their planning practice.
