Community Planning Through Form Based Codes

The City of Tampa's Land Development Coordination Division is currently in the process of working with identified planning areas throughout the City to develop form based codes. This aspect of the City's Community Planning Program began in February 2008. For a brief overview of the program read the City of Tampa Community Planning through Form Based Codes Programs Brochure.

"Form-based codes address the relationship between building facades and the public realm, the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks."   Form Based Codes Institute
