Recorded Webinar - Historic Preservation and Form-Based Codes

Form-based codes and historic preservation districts begin from the same point: an analysis of existing community fabric. The presenters provide examples of form-based codes within designated historic districts and undesignated historic areas. They offer insights into how to treat historic districts within form-based codes, using case studies from small town and large urban areas. Webinar viewers will gain insights into the relationship of historic preservation to form-based coding, when they're a good match, and the most appropriate role of a local historic preservation commission.
