guiding development along SH 130 and SH 45 in Pflugerville.
This led to zoning regulations crafted specifically for the
Three of the zoning districts established for the
corridors are Suburban (Level 3: CL3), Urban (Level 4:
CL4), and Urban Center (Level 5: CL5). These
districts correspond to the suburban, general urban,
and urban center zones listed in
the page entitled "The SmartCode" in the "SmartCode Central" Web site .
The Highland Park Industrial Special District
designated for some of the land just west of Highland Park North is an example of a corridor district that corresponds to the special district category listed in "The Smart Code".
The final zoning regulations for much of the corridor land were formulated with the aid of the IPS Group
and include form and use elements. For an introduction to form-based
"Form First" by Peter Katz (November 2004).
