City Council Presentation, February 26, 2013 at 7 P. M.
The City of Ferguson is considering a new downtown form-based zoning code to fulfill the community’s aspirations expressed in the Downtown Strategic Development Plan. Form-based codes encourage the pedestrian-friendly and mixed-use environment we envisioned for downtown Ferguson and its immediate environs. The Code was drafted by Farr Associates Architecture and Urban Design of Chicago after holding a series of interviews with businesses, property owners and developers and conducting an image preference survey at a well attended community meeting in March 2012. The draft was reviewed by the Form-Based Code Advisory Committee and Ferguson Plan Commission over a four month period. Comments and changes to the original have been incorporated in a final draft code that will be presented to City Council on February 26, 2013 at 7 P. M. If you are interested in how downtown may develop in the future, please come for the presentation.
