A new type of zoning proposed to redesign Frederick’s East Street corridor would emphasize moving buildings closer to the street, creating inviting areas for pedestrians and providing connections between neighborhoods.

A switch to a so-called form-based code for the neighborhood would emphasize community input with public design sessions and other meetings in the early planning stages to hear what residents and other members of the public want.
