Impact of Urban Planners

Every project begins with a plan - a strong, realistic vision for the future. Whether completing a small-community project or facilitating multi-year, multi-jurisdictional planning processes, strong communication is the foundation to every project's success. Urban planning is all about making sound decisions today that result in positive, impactful future actions. Below is more information on urban planning.

What it is:
Helping local leaders make proactive, informed decisions to improve their communities. Planners help with land use and development, recreational amenities, economic growth, transportation and infrastructure.

Need for urban plans:
  • Communities everywhere are competing for residents
  • Market and environmental conditions are continually shifting
  • Being a great place to live requires adaptation and initiative
Community benefits:
  • Engaging residents in planning helps build local ties – to each other and to the community
  • Planning improves places and lives
Future of urban planning:
  • 3-D visualization of future changes
  • More data and analysis tools
  • More ways for residents to stay in touch and involved
