FBC Advisory Committee Kickoff Meeting 091912

  1. 1. Agenda – 09.19.12 Welcome and Introductions Role of the Advisory Committee Overview of the Review Process Calibration and Formatting Approach Meeting Schedule Questions and Answers
  2. 2. Why a New Code for Beaufort? The Current UDO is approximately 10 years old and was built using conventional, suburban-oriented development tools The County and the Town are looking to implement a coherent vision for Northern Beaufort County There have been a large number of patches and short term fixes leaving a number of inconsistencies
  3. 3. Why a New Code for Beaufort? It is not calibrated to the future vision as set forth in the Comprehensive Plan or the Civic Master Plan It does not encourage infill and redevelopment It does not have adequate controls or guidance to manage new development in the historic district The current development process is too cumbersome and unpredictable and discourages infill & redevelopment
  4. 4. Form Based Codes vs. Conventional Zoning
  5. 5. Elements of a Form-based Code  Streetscape Type  (On-Street Parking, Drainage, Street Trees, Sidewalks)  Frontage  (Front Lawn, Rear Yard, etc)  Building Placement & Parking Location  Height  Roof Type  Architectural Detailing & Style  Use & Parking
  6. 6. Form Based Codes vs. Conventional Zoning
  7. 7. Standards – Building Form and Placement Provides foundation for establishing urban character Regulates:  Location of building  Lot width and setbacks  Scale of building relative to the surrounding context and desired development outcomes
  8. 8. Standards – Frontage Type Image by dpz How buildings meet the public realm Requires appropriate frontage types for specific locations  Common Yard  Porch  Shopfront & Awning  Arcade  Etc.
  9. 9. Standards – Streets and Public Spaces Essential components of the public realm Image by dpz How much public space and where Street types tied to development context Image by dpz Image by dpz
  10. 10. Standards – Parking Location  Behind buildings wherever possible to reinforce the street Amount  Focus on reducing parking allocation (maximum requirement, shared parking) Other  Required bike parking facilities  Screening  Pedestrian access
  11. 11. Standards – Uses Unnecessary use restrictions are typically the result of ineffective physical form requirements. Form Based Code use standards are generally much simpler and more permissive than conventional codes because of the more restrictive standards for building placement and form.
  12. 12. Standards – Process & Administration Goal: Provide a streamlined development review and approval process requiring little or no subjective review unless absolutely necessary  Encourages appropriate development by-right  Makes the development process more predictable and encourages investment  User-friendly
  13. 13. Form Based Codes in Historic Areas Standards seek to emulate the best of our historic neighborhoods. Zoning districts are context sensitive and reinforce the historic characteristics of a place. Form-based regulations provide a more predictable development environment and encourage investment in historic areas. Historic District Guidelines are a Form-Based Code
  14. 14. Form Based Codes in Historic Areas Infill standards require context-sensitivity Frontage types and building design standards require compatibility with historic structures
  15. 15. Form Based Codes in Historic Areas
  16. 16. Form Based Codes are NOT (Necessarily) About Style Form Based Codes typically regulate building scale, massing, height, frontage and placement, NOT architectural style.
