City planner working to help communities develop more equitably. More homes and more affordable homes. Integrated with mixed use centers or pockets of retail, commerce, government, entertainment, education and more. Woven into nature that we preserve for future generations. An improved transportation network to help people get from their home to where they want to go. On foot, by bike, on scooter, by auto, on metro, by bus, and more. We have the intellectual capital. We need more federal, state and local capital. We will act using multiple forms of information and communication that includes our experiences and feedback from our neighbors and peers from many backgrounds and perspectives. Perhaps we'll have some fun along the way.
