Miami 21 tales a holistic approach to urban policy and land use planning providing the city with the largest-known application of a form-based code.  Miami 21 will transform the way the City of Miami manages zoning, economic development, transportation, historic preservation, parks and open space.  The cornerstone of Miami 21 is the transformation of Miami’s existing land-use-based zoning code into a form-based code. The new code offers a more efficient, predictable, and comprehensive approach to urban development.  In particular, the predictability of the new code will greatly diminish the need for zoning amendments that achieve short term solutions, but not long term goals. The efficiency of this code will also speed up the permitting process and encourage continued investment and revitalization throughout the City.
