General Resources

The Blueprint (2018) is a roadmap of the NDC process for meaningful community engagement.  It includes a collection of practices and principles to illustrate our approach to collaborative community design.

Developed in response to COVID-19 and the challenges faced by local businesses, the Ideas Guidebook (2020) features specs for ten designs that transform public space into safe solutions. It includes building resources, health guidelines, and more.

As design consultant, NDC helped develop The Front and Center Plan, which will improve access to economic and social opportunity in six Central Baltimore neighborhoods.
