HGA designed a framework for future redevelopment in Rochelle Park by creating the Form Based Code Option (FBC). Potential developers working within the Commercial Corridor Overlay District may choose to operate with conventional zoning framework or to follow the FBC. The Option is a graphic depiction of allowable building features and zoning requirements.

The FBC stipulates how the building will be massed, the approved materials to be used, how developments will relate to the street, as well as other features that will guarantee a development that achieves the goals of this Plan.

The FBCis structured in three parts including a regulating plan, building typologies, and street-corridor plan.
