Now meets NEXT.
Even through uncertainty, every community has the potential to become better.
We make it easy for communities to do hard things.
Planning as usual? That’s not really our thing.
Success is what comes from collaboration.
Theodore Roosevelt said it best: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” We’re passionate about helping teams, staff, committees and stakeholders share a sense of purpose and place. From comprehensive planning to integrated visioning to facilitating complex, multi-jurisdictional efforts, we help create more enduring, prosperous and livable communities.
Strategic Planning + Visioning
Comprehensive Planning + Urban Design
Social Media + Web-Based Communication
Community Engagement (in-person + virtual)
This is what passion for community looks like.
Our team is curious, civic-minded and creative.
Our clients say we envision the realm of what’s possible.
We say it’s all in a day’s work.
