Heart of Peoria Form Districts

City or County: 

**Driehaus Award Winner**

The City of Peoria, Illinois, Form-Based Code is a national model for creating the form-based portions of a code - targeted to specific areas that offer great opportunities for revitalization - as part of a larger code update effort. This is a helpful model for those with a misconception that a form-based code can only be undertaken citywide. The visioning process for the areas addressed by this code established a clear basis for the regulations to implement those targeted visions.
