Gainesville Land Development Code & Form-Based Code
Land Development Code
Inspire updated the City’s Land Development Code (LDC) to incorporate form-based code principles for the downtown and surrounding area and to improve code organization, streamline regulations, and reduce the number of special zoning and overlay districts. The form-based code was completed with strict adherence to the community vision which centered on the Comprehensive Plan Update, community-driven priorities, and existing neighborhood characteristics. The form-based code and LDC revisions established a framework for the City to enable better development patterns, improve the quality of the built environment, foster pedestrian-friendly development and redevelopment, and gave citizens, developers, builders, and property owners predictable standards by which to design and build.
