Creating Form-Based Comprehensive Plans

Explore the application of the Charter to city-level comprehensive plans, as panelists discuss how comprehensive plans can de-emphasize land use and instead focus on typology, character and condition of place. Topics include state plan requirements, economic approaches, mapping of the form and character of the community, and how to set the stage for coding and implementation.
