Creating Form-Based Comprehensive Plans


This 202 session explored the application of the Charter to city-level comprehensive plans. Panelists discussed how comprehensive plans can de-emphasize land use and focus on typology, character, and condition of place. Topics included state plan requirements, the economic approaches, mapping of the form and character of the community, and how to set the stage for coding and implementation.
