Registration is open for FBC 301: Formulating, Adopting and Administering a Code, a form-based zoning code workshop. The workshop will be held on September 18 and 19 hosted by MORPC and conducted by the Form Based Codes Institute.

It is the second form-based code workshop in Columbus this summer. The first, in late June, was called Placemaking with Form-Based Codes, and focused on the urban-design aspects of form-based zoning codes and on the process of developing one with the community. The September workshop is more technical, concentrating on how the code relates to the comprehensive plan, the mechanics of adopting a code, and how to draft and administer the code. Registrants for FBC 301 will received a discounted registration if they attended the workshop in June. MORPC members also receive a discount on registration. Contact Jennifer Noll at for more information.


Please consult the course page on the FBCI website for additional information, registration details, lodging options, the draft agenda and the instructors. For registration assistance, contact Susie Gingrich at or 202-540-9819.
