Coalition to Host Meeting December 2

The Westwood Coalition welcomes the community to a meeting at Westwood United Methodist Church on December 2 at 7 p.m.  We’ve talked about the Form Based Code before but this time, we’ll present refinements to the application of the Cincinnati Form Based Code to the historic business district.

Wondering what that means?  Well, back in August, about 80 of us came together to look at maps and talk about the area that might benefit from the Form Based Code.  We said in our report and recommendations that we’d get back together as a community to share further developments to the map, or regulating plan, once City Planning officials refined it.  Come to the meeting to see the details.  Bring a neighbor with you.

You might want to read our two page Form Based Code Myths and Realities in advance for a better sense of what the code is — and what it is not.

Form Based Code Myths and Realities

The Cincinnati Form Based Code and, more specifically, its anticipated application to Westwood’s historic business district, has spawned some misconceptions or myths.  The Westwood Coalition offers our neighbors this two page list of myths and corresponding realities.  We hope that you will take a look, read more deeply in our Further Reading section, and share this information with friends and neighbors.  Feel free to email the Coalition with questions and comments.   Here is the list of Form Based Code Myths and Realities.

Mark your calendar, details forthcoming:  The next Westwood Coalition community meeting will be the evening of December 2, 2013.
