The Sustainable, Affordable, Visitable, Edible Transect: New Modules for the SmartCode and other Development Codes

Description: 

As the state of the economy worsens, the demand for smart planning is more urgent than ever. New Urbanists need coordinated ready-made tools to adapt quickly to changing economic, regulatory and environmental conditions. The framework of the rural-to-urban transect has allowed practitioners to coordinate efficiently a new generation of zoning and design codes for a decade now. This session will present the latest transect-based, form-based Modules, available as freeware to all.
