This is how must-see cities are created.
Urban planning and design are crucial to the future of place – quality of life depends on people and where and how they live. It’s not just a document filed at city hall, but an investment in the future – providing context for decisions that will fulfill a long-term vision.
Having planning, architectural and engineering experts all under one roof means our clients can leave everything to us, from grand ideas to zoning code language. Residents can take pride in the rejuvenation of their city by hanging out in great new restaurants, patronizing new boutique retail areas or enjoying public spaces which provide the greatest benefit to the wider community.
Comprehensive Community Planning
Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Neither were any other great places for that matter. That’s because passionate urban planners create comprehensive plans that sustain communities for generations. We have worked with numerous municipalities to update or replace their comprehensive plans in order to adapt to changes in land use and development, assess the impact on the infrastructure and operations of a municipality, and provide a framework for continued success.
We believe cities have personalities.
And we know it to be a fact that the character of the physical environment drives economic investment and promotes a sense of ownership in a place. Urban design is created in context with all public space – from building front to building front, including sidewalks, landscaping and all forms of transportation.
There really are people whose passion is traffic jams.
Or designing a way to avoid them, anyway. Transportation planning experts at Guernsey provide statewide, regional, local and project-based plans for all modes of transportation, from public transportation and automobile traffic, to bicycle routes and freight routing through growing communities.
If you plan it well, they will not only come – they will invest.
Placemaking is the intersection of art and science that creates and invigorates public spaces; spaces that are the heart of the community. The process of placemaking is collaborative, it connects designers to users, policymakers to citizens. We can help develop a vision for your public spaces through public meetings and fostering stakeholder engagement. We can help implement those visions through design and project management.
