dc.description.abstractPrince Avenue in Athens, Georgia has been the subject of much interest in the last few years. The Athens Regional Medical Center (ARMC) is rapidly expanding, The University of Georgia (UGA) will convert the existing Navy Supply Corps School (NSCS) into a Medical School Campus, and iconic architectural landmarks have been razed. With no true blueprint for future growth, expansion can occur haphazardly, with little to no attention given to the human experience. The Community Approach to Planning Prince Avenue (CAPPA) formed in response to these pressures on Prince Avenue. CAPPA graphically demonstrated design solutions favorable to pedestrian issues along the corridor. As well, professionals have authored several books on the theoretical and physical components of place, form and the public realm that can be incorporated into a design vocabulary to influence the built form of successful urban environments. The results from the CAPPA initiative and theoretical research are an appropriate base for further study to explore how the use of form based code planning can be applied to Prince Avenue as a regulating vehicle to achieve results that are favorable to pedestrians and sensitive to human scale.
