What is Chicopee’s existing urban form? What works? What doesn’t work? Could form-based coding help the city plan for the future?

Joel Russell, Executive Director of the Form-Based Codes Institute, and Lee Pouliot, Acting City Planner for the City of Chicopee, will present the findings of a day-long workshop focusing on Chicopee’s existing urban form in a free event at the Chicopee Public Library on Monday, April 27.

The presentation is part of a series of lectures presented by The Conway School this winter and spring. The series, titled “Smaller Cities | Greener Futures,” will focus on issues relevant to small, post-industrial cities, because of the significant social and infrastructure resources these communities have and their potential contributions to a more sustainable future.

The presentation on April 27 is free and open to the public, but space is limited. For more information and to register, please click here.
