Project Spotlight: Town of Oakland, FL

PlanActive Studio led the Town of Oakland's city wide design code to ensure the context and character of the Town would be preserved by creating a form-based code that supports the local architecture without creating strict historic design guidelines.  

The town also has a unique location with their gateway into the town being located on a State Roadway that creates some challenges that fragment the Town's overall character.

The new code acknowledges the design of the street while balancing the need to create walkable places.

PlanActive Studio developed a user friendly approach to provide applicants on how to use the new standards.
