Form Based Code training at Pace rescheduled to November

FBC 301
Formulating, Adopting and Administering a Code
 
FBC 301 focuses on formulating, adopting, and administering a form-based code. The course will offer an in-depth look at the relationship between the comprehensive plan and a form-based code, the mechanics of code adoption, the advantages and disadvantages of mandatory, parallel and floating-zone codes, and ways to avoid common pitfalls in the drafting and administration of form-based codes.
 
Instructors will explain how to structure the process, including what must happen before, during, and after the code is drafted, what to keep and what to discard from an existing conventional code, how to relate the form-based code to the existing regulatory framework in a specific municipality, how to insulate a FBC against potential legal challenges, and issues of post-adoption implementation and project review. The course will examine specific examples and lessons learned from experience working with form-based codes and will include a hands-on exercise in code implementation.
 
NOTE: The one-day intro class ABCs of Form-Based Codes (or FBC 101e on-line) is prerequisite for taking FBC 301.
 
FBC 301 is part of FBCI’s 3-course series. It combines with FBC 101 (ABCs of Form-Based Codes) and FBC 201 (Urban Design), to complete a thorough instruction in the discipline of form-based coding. FBCI awards a certificate to all those completing the 3-course series.
