When a community has a vision but doesn’t know how to start, the Neighborhood Design Center steps in to get the ball rolling.
We bring the right people to the table, build capacity, conduct research, and provide top-notch design and planning services (often for pro bono). With the right resources, communities then have what they need to get funding for implementation, maintenance, and more.
From revitalizing commercial districts to developing comprehensive greening strategies, we help make neighborhoods more vibrant, safe, and sustainable.
