"Cincinnati City Council has approved $50,000 in funding for the development of neighborhood-based form-based codes."
"The funding will allow the City to hire a consultant team to review City regulations, study best practices, and develop options for implementation that can be condensed into a strategic guidebook that can be used as a blueprint for planning efforts in several Cincinnati neighborhoods."
"These standards give neighborhoods a way to ensure that new development has a look and feel that's consistent with traditional neighborhood patterns – instead of the sprawl that conventional zoning has produced," says Councilmember Roxanne Qualls, recently appointed chair of council's Vibrant Neighborhoods Committee. "This approach promotes walkable communities that support a range of transportation options."
