Community Health

Place-based Planning

Planning for spaces that strengthen neighborhoods.

We support the planning, development, and maintenance of public spaces, from city streets to public parks. We leverage our expertise in stakeholder engagement and management, economic and community development policy, placemaking, and public finance to create solutions that support thriving neighborhoods and open spaces that are community assets. Our expertise in program design and evaluation ensures that our solutions remain relevant and flexible over time.

We combine urban design best practices and our proven community engagement process to create designs, management structures, and policies that lead to thriving urban spaces. Our work has supported updates to zoning codes that support the evolution of communities. We’ve also supported the creation of innovative climate adaptation strategies that promote the long-term health and safety of the community. To each engagement, we bring a focus on the local context, history, and goals, infusing the character and needs of the community into the solutions we develop.
