About the Berry/University Form-Based Code

The City of Fort Worth and several partner organizations are working together to create a plan and establish a form-based code for the Berry/University area.

A form-based code is a set of regulations adopted by City Council to govern how development fits into the area’s overall environment. Unlike conventional zoning, which separates the types of uses for a property, form-based code connects buildings in a neighborhood to engage pedestrians and bring vitality to the area.

The Berry/University Urban Village form-based code initiative is a collaboration between the city, Trinity Metro, Texas Christian University (TCU) and the Berry Street Initiative.
