The City of Richmond is developing a Form-Based Development Codes (FBC) for three major commercial corridors in the City. Form Based Codes include new zoning rules and architectural guidelines that will help transform and revitalize Macdonald Avenue, San Pablo Avenue, and 23rd Street into livable, walkable, bikeable and economically thriving corridors. The Form Based Codes address public realm components, including roadways, streets, sidewalks, and civic spaces. Great streets and great places are where we enjoy bicycling.
