Urban Design + Planning The Center is a forward-thinking planning and urban design practice blending the talents of city planners, architects, landscape architects and urban designers. These melded talents produce a collaborative process where todayâ€™s urban design and planning challenges are met with enthusiasm and an unwavering desire to create livable spaces capable of enduring for years to come. We strive to facilitate the rebirth of the American city as a
vital, sustainable, stimulating environment which is supportive of meaningful lifestyles. We understand that a cross-section of skilled planning talent is the best way to envision community enhancements that bring our worlds closer to the idealized communities people desire. Our goal is to create a true sense of place in every community we touch and, through this, to increase property values and to complement the existing character of the community.
