Improve Public Space and Neighborhoods

Cities should be built and designed for the people who live in them. City leaders need to balance the density of development with well-designed public space that enhances livability for both long-time and new residents alike. Streets need to be clean and walkable, parks should be beautiful and inviting, and neighborhoods need to be affordable and connected.

We assist cities to create, modify, and implement programs and policy around:

  • Graffiti Abatement
  • Housing Supply and Inventory
  • Land Development and Adaptive Re-use
  • Lighting Repair and Modernization
  • Long-Term Planning and Zoning
  • Mapping and Geospatial Analysis
  • Neighborhood Improvement Districts
  • Parks Maintenance and Beautification
  • Pedestrian Infrastructure Improvements
  • Public Plaza Development and Design
  • Waterfront Revitalization and Access
