$15 > Now available on-demand as a recorded session

This webinar addresses form-based codes at the regional level, and looks at case studies and lessons learned from writing form-based codes for counties. Learning Objectives: 1: Explain the environmentally destructive effects of sprawl-inducing zoning and subpision regulations. 2: Describe the critical need for thoroughfare calming and retrofitting to encourage pedestrians and cyclists, and plan for appropriate connectivity that can reduce VMT and CO2 production. 3: Assess the methods of implementing Transect-based, form-based codes at the regional or county scale. 4: Participants will begin to understand how to employ a Form-Based Code to define appropriate regional community types, including sectors appropriate for sprawl repair.
