Introducing the Civic Design Partnership!

CDP FoundersI swear that I have the best timing for my career ventures. All sarcasm aside, I have been meaning to make an announcement for the past three weeks and it just has not yet happened. The past few months have been filled with great new clients and building upon the Urbanist and Sustainability Principles that I have preached in the Pikes Peak Region for past 15 years. From affordable housing, to tactical urbanism all the way to writing a 130+ page Form-based Code for a new town, it’s shaping up to the life I want to live.

If that wasn’t enough, I have taken my nimble, flexible and efficient company of one and merged with two fellow individuals (and their companies) in the landscape architecture and planning business to add capacity. Together, we are stronger!

Former ALC colleagues, Ryan Bowman, and his company Bowman Studios LLC alongside with Jeff Webb and his company Populus Planning & Design LLC have joined Urban Landscapes LLC to create the Civic Design Partnership (CDP). []

We specialize in community planning, public engagement and design informed by a Strong Towns Approach. We pride ourselves on working with our clients to create a dynamic and innovative public process – often resulting in an enhanced community and Government relationship.

Studio Founders of CDP have more than thirty years of combined planning and design experience on projects in Colorado and across the United States. From community—led planning projects in small mountain town communities to the creation of new town standards and guidelines for developing neighborhoods, we are the complementary team for you.

Our wealth of experience stradles the Public and Private Sectors through numerous rezoning successes in several jurisdictions and a plethora of development projects. Our Team has the perspective and experience to effectively advance projects from vision to implementation. We bring a passion, dedication and knowledge that will make your project a success.

Of course, we’re in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which I certainly believe that we should all take very seriously, so I won’t be offering to buy you lunch or a beer to discuss anytime too soon. However, this too, shall pass and I look forward to future in-person conversations.

Please remember that when you’re looking for a skilled team to help you with your urban planning, parks and trail design along with your general landscape architecture needs, give us a call to discuss the potential of working together.

In the meantime, stay safe, wash your hands, be kind and continue to be awesome!
