City of Bradenton, FL Adopts Form-Based Code

This morning, the Bradenton City Council voted to adopt a new form-based code that will guide the future of development in downtown. The code includes designs for pedestrian-friendly, multi-modal thoroughfares, architectural standards that promote climate-responsive, authentic buildings, landscape standards that encourage habitat creation and local food production, and sustainability articles on diverse topics such as dark-sky lighting, renewable energy generation, and low-impact stormwater design. The code was written by Dover-Kohl and adopted in just nine months, with the assistance of Hall Planning & Engineering, Inc. and Karin Murphy Planning & Consulting, Inc.
