The panelists will provide information regarding the essential elements of implementable development codes – market conditions, financial pressures and practical applications. Their presentations will include intelligence based on experience working with teams charged with drafting and executing design and development codes in established urban corridors and neighborhoods.
Panelists will highlight an interactive session that will begin by highlighting emerging market trends by sector and ways that planners can leverage these trends to inform their future land use strategies and development codes in manner consistent with those trends. Then panelists will illustrate the impact of certain code requirements (i.e., setbacks, height limits, parking ratios, and others) on the economic feasibility of various catalyzing development programs (i.e., mixed-use, mixed-income housing, single use low-rise, others). As advisors to public sector clients on downtowns, infill, corridor and transit-related projects, they will share how this approach led to successful implementation and partnerships by highlighting different case studies, including one along an urban principal thoroughfare and another in the redevelopment of Downtown Dayton, Texas.
1. Understand specific market sector and fiscal influences on development/redevelopment potential.
2. Examine best practices and lessons learned from several case studies in Texas.
3. Learn to execute a more effective planning process that leads to implementable codes in a variety of settings
