The City is processing several large-scale developments in the Front Beach Road corridor that are subject to the recently adopted form-based code, which was drafted to provide better linkages between the public and private realms in this vital tourist corridor. The code establishes site and building design standards to ensure that development is coordinated with transit, pedestrian and bicycle enhancements. Michael Lauer, who drafted the form-based code with support from Kevin Klinkenberg, Mark White and Ginger Corless, worked with City staff and attorneys to incorporate the form-based provisions in a unified land development code (LDC) and continues to prove support for code maintenance and site plan reviews.
