Media Notices Form Based Codes

Councilmember Roxanne Qualls has been quietly building support and organizing neighborhoods to adopt Form Based Codes (FBCs). I first noticed and blogged about it in January, when she was only newly returned to her council seat.

Today, the Business Courier has a great article explaining elaborating on Quall's effort. I especially like this quote "This is not some esoteric, theoretical concept. It's being implemented profitably in cities similar to Cincinnati". The neighborhoods that are showing the most interest so far are: Madisonville, Westwood, Pleasant Ridge and Westwood.

Also see this article recently in Soapbox.
