TEDxBuffalo: SmartCode and Beer

28 Oct

Two great TEDx talks from TEDxBuffalo.  First, Ethan Cox from Community Beer Works talks about embeering America:


Next, Chuck Banas talks about the new Green Code that is being implemented in the city of Buffalo. This will represent the first overhaul of the city’s zoning and land use regulations in generations.  You can attend “Planning Day in Buffalo” this Saturday at a Green Code open house at Erie Community College’s City Campus, 121 Ellicott St from 9:30am – 3:30pm.  The code will be formally presented at 9am, 10:30am, and 1pm.

    Just a point of clarification:

    The Buffalo Green Code will be a form-based zoning code.
    The SmartCode is a transect-based and form-based zoning code, used by many communities and intended to be calibrated for local conditions.
    The Buffalo Green Code is not a calibrated version of the SmartCode.

    Not all form-based codes are SmartCode variants.
