Form-Based Code Development City of Moline

Moline, IL


The City of Moline is requesting qualifications for consultant services to assist with the development of a form-based code for Moline Centre, its historic downtown. The selected consultant will enter into a contract with the City of Moline.


Downtown Moline has had considerable success in redevelopment in the last 20 years. This area includes some significant and intensive uses, including the TaxSlayer Center, Centre Station (transit center and parking structure), KONE, Inc., and Riverstation office buildings. In addition, there has been a number of successful redevelopment and adaptive reuse projects, including Stoney Creek Hotel, Element Hotel (Westin), and the Axis Hotel (Hilton) and the Radisson, as well as substantial institutional development with the Western Illinois University Campus. However, it also has its share of empty storefronts, vacant property and underdeveloped parcels.

It is anticipated that the construction of a new I-74 bridge presents a unique opportunity to redevelop areas of Downtown Moline that once laid under the existing interstate highway. Renew Moline, a private, non-profit corporation works closely with the City of Moline and has participated in significant redevelopment projects over its 30-year history. In April 2021, Renew Moline (in partnership with local entities) contracted with the Urban Land Institute to conduct an Advisory Panel to contemplate the future I-74 redevelopment opportunity. ULI's final report is forthcoming, but the presentation to the community is available at Renew Moline – Leading Vision | Managing Change .

The City wishes to regulate development and redevelopment in Moline Centre with a Form Based Code, to, among other things, ensure that new development has an urban aesthetic and a high quality, as well as maintain its mixed use character with development that complements and enhances the architectural character of the area.

Purpose and Goals

The project will focus on the preparation of a Regulating Plan and Form Based Code that will guide future development within the Moline Centre District, including the Moline Multimodal Station TOD Zone and the I-74 Bridge Realignment Zone. These two transportation-based zones contain regional transportation assets and significant investment by local, state and federal entities with the intention of maximizing land development and growth.
