The City Council also adopted a Form Based Code (PDF) on November 6, 2012, for specific areas in the City. To date the following areas are required to follow the standards in the FBC: Woodside Living (PDF), Healthy Living (PDF), Signature Gateway (PDF) and Downtown (PDF). Please contact staff if you have specific questions regarding these areas or are interested in rezoning property to a Form Based District. We look forward to working with you.
