SMARTER CODES DIALOGUE
How to Implement Form-Based Codes

Belo Mansion, 2101 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75201
Thursday, September 22, 2011
8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. (or so)

Many communities across North Texas are adopting Form-Based Codes, having learned that the common, use-based zoning codes of the past have over-regulated the marketplace and failed to protect or produce great, people-oriented places. Form-based codes overcome these weaknesses but are only a tool and, just as owning a paintbrush doesn’t make one an artist, an FBC won’t automatically make your town a masterpiece. Implementation is everything.

CNU-North Texas hosts our nation’s leading experts for a day-long presentation on the Do’s and Dont’s of implementing these new “Smarter Codes” for superior results. Lunch will be provided. After the sessions, join a walking tour of Dallas’ Uptown district, terminating at the Londoner pub for drinks and conversation.
