Orange Code

Orange Code will serve as the new land development regulations that focus on placemaking standards and context-based regulations. This Form-Based Code relies on desired development characteristics rather than what communities seek to avoid.

The Vision 2050 Comprehensive Plan and Orange Code were developed through a robust public engagement process that started in 2020. While Vision 2050 controls land use types and where growth will occur, Orange Code will help shape the form of our urban fabric by fostering predictable built environments and a high-quality public realm.

Transect Zones will replace the County’s existing zoning districts in Orange Code. Instead of segregating land uses, transect zones regulate the development’s physical form and how it complements the surrounding buildings, streetscape, and community.
