Urban Design

Urban design is the process of shaping the built environment of the City. While Architecture focuses on the design of individual buildings, urban design deals with how groups of buildings relate to one another and to the streets and public spaces they define. The Planning Division promotes best practices in urban design with the goal of creating a vibrant and walkable city with cohesive mixed-use neighborhoods connected through by a functional circulation network of streets and blocks.
