Hamden, CT SmartCode

Hamden was originally a trolley suburb of New Haven, CT with development spreading northward from New Haven. The task of the team lead by Robert Orr & Associates was to create a SmartCode & Regulating Plan that would allow the commercial strip centers along the two major roads in Hamden to transition to a more walkable & sustainable future by bringing new buildings up to the sidewalk. Fisher Town Design was the SmartCode consultant. Fisher Town Design created a visual preference survey and calibrated the original SmartCode which was then folded into the existing Zoning Code to create an integrated code. Fisher Town Design educated the Hamden planners on the principles behind the SmartCode to facilitate the creation of the integrated code.
