Form-Based Coding for Results: What's Working, What's Not - Polikov CNU17

  1. 1. Form Based Coding for Results What’s Working, What’s Not Scott Polikov, AICP June 13, 2009
  2. 2. The Opportunities <ul><li>Infill Precision </li></ul><ul><li>Use transition </li></ul><ul><li>Non-conforming Uses </li></ul><ul><li>and Structures </li></ul><ul><li>Private Open Space </li></ul>
  3. 3. Infill Precision
  4. 4. <ul><li>Duncanville, Texas </li></ul><ul><li>Located in south Dallas County </li></ul><ul><li>“ First Ring” suburban community </li></ul><ul><li>Looking to expand economic development </li></ul><ul><li>Potential for a rail station in downtown </li></ul><ul><li>Master Plan and Code approved 2007 </li></ul>
  5. 7. Main Street Today
  6. 8. Main Street after CSS redesign now underway.
  7. 9. The build-to line needed to be set for coding…. But there was no survey available at that time.
  8. 10. Regulating Plan based on City’s GIS data Street Redesign based on survey
  9. 11. Code language allows for re-alignment of build-to line and pedestrian zone once survey undertaken for redesign of Main Street

  11. 13. North Richland Hills, Texas <ul><li>Suburban community in DFW </li></ul><ul><li>Two planned commuter rail stations along the line connecting DFW Airport to Downtown Fort Worth </li></ul><ul><li>Land locked looking at TOD’s as an economic development tool </li></ul>
  12. 16. Balancing Flexibility with Predictability <ul><li>Define “mixed use” in the context of TOD’s </li></ul><ul><li>“ Mixed Use” not just a word for just apartments </li></ul><ul><li>Form Based Code established performance standards to ensure use mix based on scale of proposed development and relationship to street types </li></ul>
  13. 18. Surface Parking Lot or TOD? <ul><li>Facilitate transition of surface parking over time to mixed use </li></ul><ul><li>Allow for interim surface parking with phasing requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Permit requirement for surface parking (with more than 50 spaces) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Phasing plan for development on the site based on ridership and market </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>City may impose time limits </li></ul></ul>
