Have you heard about form based codes, but are not sure exactly how they work or if they are right for your community? Or are you curious how form based codes could be used as an economic development tool to attract investments? Perhaps you are familiar with form based codes, but want the chance to ask specific questions about the benefits associated with this tool.
Whatever the reason, be sure to join us next week at the Decatur Holiday Inn Conference Center, where Hazel Borys and Susan Henderson, both from PlaceMakers, LLC, will be discussing these very things. Hazel and Susan will be presenting on the advantages of traditional urban design as an economic development strategy, exploring the form-based SmartCode as a key tool for making it happen, and will conclude with some round table discussions on next steps for form-based codes in the Atlanta region.
And did I mention that this event if FREE? AND that 1.5 hours continuing education credit for APA & AIA are offered? AND that afterwards, the City of Decatur is hosting PlaceMaking @ the Pub at the many establishments surrounding the Decatur square, during which your first pint is free? Be sure to mark your calendars and join us for this fun and informative event!
