Community and Urban Design
Many communities wish to improve the appearance and function of existing development. Our urban designers can help you create streetscape visions, downtown design guidelines, redevelopment concepts, and housing design standards.
We also provide planning and design assistance for “greenfield” development, both through the creation of neighborhood plans that will guide private development efforts, and through our work with private developers to establish street and open space design, building placement and design standards, landscape design, etc.
The MSA team offers an array of technical expertise that is frequently utilized in community design projects, including municipal finance, storm water planning and engineering, traffic engineering, and water and wastewater systems. These disciplines inform our planning work and ensure that our plans and guidelines are achievable within existing regulatory standards.
