Community Design

Community Design


Community development is more than just planning and construction projects. It involves building on local strengths, and enhancing the assets, culture, history and goals of a community to facilitate positive change. You need to have a team of professionals in place that understands the difference it makes when plans are crafted to be implementable and based on careful considerations of the relationships between people and the built environment.
