This session will look at form based codes in Hartford and Simsbury, Connecticut. The codes differ in scale, timeline, and who championed them. Planners will hear the different approaches taken by the respective entities to develop, draft, and adopt the form based code. Consultants and municipal staff will discuss the data gathering and analysis of existing conditions that needs to take place before drafting a city wide FBC. Planners will also learn about the public participation process that needs occur to get buy in from the citizens and the development community. Planners will have a better understanding of which type (city wide or site specific) would work best for their community.
