Twenty years ago, downtown West Palm Beach was dying. Clematis Street, like Main Streets across the country, was failing. Where CityPlace now stands, 14 city blocks of intact urbanism had been razed for a failed redevelopment scheme.

This session will describe how dynamic city leaders and a foresighted planning team turned downtown around, with particular attention to the role played by a pioneering Form-Based Code. A panel of local experts will add their personal insights, including thoughts on the latest downtown master plan and code.
