Comprehensive Planning

Comprehensive planning for cities and neighborhood organizations  including : organizing design charters, demographic research and analysis, presentations and facilitated discussions with mayors and other elected representatives; and launching of initiatives capable of transforming communities physically, economically, and socially.

Strategic Planning
