Detroit Shoreway/Cudell Form-Based Code

Form-Based Code

The City Planning Commission has identified parts of the Detroit Shoreway and Cudell neighborhoods to be the first form-based code areas in Cleveland.

This project area aligns with the strategy of providing for planning and zoning support near areas where public and private investment are working together. This will allow the City and residents to drive the vision for areas anticipated to see spinoff development activity in the near future and help to ensure equitable results.

What is a Form-Based Code?

A Form-Based Code is a new approach to zoning with an increased focus on walkability, predictability and mixed use development.

Why do we need your help?

We've identified the first pilot area of our form-based code project and we need your help gathering ideas that will drive the vision for these neighborhoods.

1st Pilot Area Boundary (Detroit Shoreway & Cudell)

Detroit Shoreway is located two miles west of downtown Cleveland, extending to W. 85th Street, on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie. Continuing west, Cudell includes the West Eighties and Nineties streets and the Edgewater Parke block club, south of the Edgewater neighborhood and Edgewater Parke.
