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.
