Vienna Looks at Form-Based Code

The town of Vienna in Fairfax County is studying the possibility of converting to a form-based code along Maple Avenue, reports The Connection Newspapers. In contrast to traditional, Euclidian zoning, which governs the use of a piece of land, form-based codes regulate the shape and design of the buildings on the land. Form-based codes typically do away with traditional strip shopping centers set behind large parking lots that are inhospitable to foot traffic.

Well, that is one way to stop the argument about land use.
