Urban + Community Planning
Through comprehensive policy initiatives and innovative design, our planners create clear and responsible development strategies to bring our clients’ visions to life.
As communities evolve to meet the demands of current and future residents, we specialize in creating places where everyone can safely thrive. These transformations are a result of comprehensive planning and implementable design and create the framework for formulating a community vision.
Here's how we can help you bring your vision to life:

Visualization is a critical communication tool to help designers, builders, and investors to all stay on the same page during the decision-making and construction process. Visuals help to save in the long run by cutting construction and rebuilding costs. The use of visuals allows for a quicker approval process. They are easy to share and result in fewer design changes.
Renderings are powerful tools that act as a magic bridge taking oneself from drawings to completed designs in the blink of an eye. A rendering can spark the imagination like nothing else.
Through traditional and non-traditional stakeholder engagement techniques, we use innovative tools to promote active partnerships, strong stakeholder relationships, and two-way communication with residents and businesses.
Today, street design is a literal and figurative crossroad. Unmet access, safety, and sustainability goals endure while emerging trends & technologies are increasing demand for street space. Every street cannot be complete for every mode, so Complete Streets work best within networks featuring safe & convenient connections. Our project team pinpoints priority modes, network, and streetscape elements. We find options for street, curb, and sidewalk design for any variety of contexts.
