Skip to comments.Form-based Codes: Replacing the everyday American City with the ‘Ideal Communist City’
Posted on 04/03/2019 5:18:16 PM PDT by Twotone
A form-based code is a land development regulation that fosters predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. A form-based code is a regulation, not a mere guideline, adopted into city, town, or county law. A form-based code offers a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation.
Several years ago, I wrote a series of articles for News with Views, explaining Sustainable Development. Today two of them are popping up regularly in the media. Back when I wrote these two articles, people would not believe that all this planning and organizing could have been dreamed up by the Power Elite, let along set down as part of the blueprint for Agenda 21.
Read that definition above of Form-based Code again. Note: a regulation, not a mere guideline for every city, town, or county. And a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation. You be it is. The only good I can see from this is that we can get rid of 90% of the staff on our planning commissions everything will be spelled out for us by the Power Elite. There will be no exceptions.
Today, A Southern California county put the finishing touches on a first-of-its-kind wildlife corridor Tuesday that will protect important pathways for animals to pass between critical habitats and into Los Padres National Forest. This is part of the Wildlands Project. The main aim is to provide restrictions on development to provide adequate pathways for wildlife to pass through rural and semirural parts of Ventura County. Guidelines under the new zoning ordinance include restrictions on outdoor lighting, fencing and other development that could hinder animals. Waterways will also gain a 200-foot buffer to protect animals from human incursion.

Plank #1 of the Communist Manifesto: Abolition of private property rights.
Very good post. Thanks. BUMP!
The left see all of society as SimCity, yielding to their whims.
The ghost of FDR.
Ronald Reagan: “How do we call a liberal? You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.
And what is fascism? Reagan said. Fascism is private ownership, private enterprise, but total government control and regulation. Well, isnt this the liberal philosophy?
The conservative, so-called, is the one that says less government, get off my back, get out of my pocket, and let me have more control of my own destiny, he said.
2020: "Everybody into the city!"
When you hear someone say “sustainable”, run for your life!
Well, that doesn't sound good. I mean, the ideal communist is a dead one, so....
Small semi-urban towns where even the poorest people own their own homes on sizable plots, are falling victim to the siren song of HUD grant money.
These small towns want to big-city-fy themselves by convincing the po-folk to abandon their land and kitchen gardens and single wide trailers in favor of government subsidized rentals in tomorrow’s drug-infested housing projects.
Inner cities dont want these projects anymore. People are moving out of inner cities to rural areas where land & homes are cheap and the pace is slower & safer.
But the crypto-commie social controllers at HUD are determined to follow them.
American Policy Center?
After reading that screed, let’s just say, “You will not find a greater hive of scum and villainny” and just plain cluelessness.
RIP Stephen Lee (Conrad)
I managed to get through most of the excerpt before my eyes glazed over and still don’t know what the alternative to zoning means and does.
“A form-based code is a land development regulation that fosters predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. A form-based code is a regulation, not a mere guideline, adopted into city, town, or county law. A form-based code offers a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation”
What the heck does that mean?
How will the Wildlands Project be enforced when the enforcers are laying in the gutter with their commie brains blown out? I bet the commies never thought of that possibility. That’s because their plans are written in comicbooks and never based on reality.
The way I read it, the buildings in one area are the same size and design, but one could be a toxic chemical manufacturing plant and next door could be a pre-school.
Shove the code.
Peeps to be plugged into The Matrix.
