Picture It: Coding for Character

Get lost in the details when explaining zoning reform? Hazel Borys puts forth a pictorial review that helps.

"Places, just like people, are dynamic, changing, growing, shrinking, refining, evolving. But the character of most places is unique, and challenged – rather than protected – by its current laws."

"Just like a good friend helps you become more of who you really are, good development laws code for character. And that helps places grow in authentic patterns, building walkable community instead of placeless strips and pods for fast cars."

Hazel Borys gives her pictorial review of how a form-based code can help.
