SmartCode

Miami 21

City or County: 
Miami
State: 
FL

**Driehaus Award Winner**

The City of Miami’s Form-Based Code is a national groundbreaking model because city officials completely replaced the existing zoning code. The code sets up walkable urbanism as the citywide default pattern for development and redevelopment. Miami 21 is the most sophisticated application of the SmartCode to date. The entire document is very well thought out and written. The table of contents and structure are very clear.

Gulfport Code

City or County: 
Gulfport
State: 
MS

**Driehaus Award Winner**

The Gulfport Code is the first new FBC to be adopted in communities hit by Hurricane Katrina. While an optional code, an add-on to the city’s existing regulations, it still holds immense potential to serve as a model for other recovering communities. The sheer effort to create the Gulfport code brought the community together under difficult circumstances. It makes many additions to the base SmartCode, in a tactic intended to embed the FBC in local practice.

Leander TOD Code

City or County: 
Leander
State: 
TX

**Driehaus Award Winner**

Leander's code shows the initiative of a municipality preparing for the development expected to result from planned transportation improvements. The city's current population of 17,000 is anticipated to exceed 200,000, as Leander is linked to Austin by tollway and regional commuter rail. This mandatory code is an effective customization of the SmartCode template, addressing complicated issues of Texas planning law, as well as architectural standards intended to characterize the growing community.
