So many things in our day-to-day lives are influenced by the way our cities are designed: where we live, how we get around, where we recreate, where we get our food, our health, and even our relationships with other people. Conversely, the way we interact with our cities has a profound impact on our environment, economy, and society. We as planners have the good fortune/challenge of synthesizing these two sides of the coin and creating coherent, thoughtful, and meaningful plans to make cities more sustainable, equitable, functional, and fun.
