Form Based Codes

The City of New Smyrna Beach has held workshops for the purpose of discussing an update to the regulations applicable to the downtown and surrounding areas.  The City intends to improve the regulations by adopting a form-based code approach that uses physical form, rather than separation of land uses, as the organizing principle.  Form-based codes foster predictable results in the built environment and a high quality public realm.

Participants have been active in analyzing current challenges and opportunities for development in the downtown area, and defining "character" districts.
