Visioning is in the DNA of city planning and integral to our approach. The plans we develop emerge from the collective aspirations of individual community members and shared knowledge about how to create cities that work. Our engagement and storytelling techniques foster a shared understanding that leads to a vision for the future that all members of the community can stand behind and act upon.
Integrates Planning Principles
We integrate the art and science of city planning in all our work. We begin by understanding the context of place (people, culture, history, character) to explore context sensitive design solutions that improve physical spaces. Our analytical approach hones in on the key variables that influence land use, travel demand, economics and environmental conditions. When combined, this systems level understanding of the community reveals the key challenges and opportunities, reframes the issues and prompts new ideas about what might be possible to foster cities that work.
