This thesis explores Form-Based Codes and how they work in communities with historic preservation goals. Through case studies of three cities, Montgomery, Alabama, Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina, the use of Form-Based Codes within cities with historic districts are assessed. In addition, this thesis explores the history of zoning in the United States, the New Urbanism Movement, and the basics of Form-Based Codes. Finally, recommendations for communities considering the adoption of Form-Based Codes that also have historic resources and historic districts are provided.
