Ford Site Design Standards
Design standards support the development of a walkable, pedestrian and bike-friendly built environment, and encourage a sense of place. They impact how the faces of buildings meet the street, what exterior building materials should be used, and landscaping. In 2017, the City Council directed the creation of design standards when it adopted the Ford Site Zoning and Public Realm Master Plan (Ford Site Master Plan). The Ford Site design standards will be added to the Ford Site Master Plan, with Zoning Code amendments necessary for consistency.
