Community Planning

Placemaking is a master planning that integrates land use, housing, mobility, community identity and economic development at the appropriate scale and location within a community.

There is an increasing demand to strike a balance among community growth, environmental stewardship and social needs. We recognize that the approach must be integrated; it must demand local involvement, dedicated expert resources and emphasize quality design. Pond’s Community Planning group creates better communities by delivering innovative and practical solutions that bring communities together with natural surroundings to create harmonious environments where people thrive.

Our holistic approach draws on individual expertise, past experience and passion for the environment to provide planning services that are environmentally sensitive and support the dynamic relationship between people and place. Expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), community involvement and visualization tools enable our thought leaders to passionately communicate distinct visions to project stakeholders during charrettes and community/client presentations and help build consensus.
