Urban Planning
Understanding the day-to-day realities of City planning
Garver's Urban Planning Team Members have provided urban planning services to more than 50 cities. Garver's approach to urban planning is one that values innovation while using time-tested planning principles to make plans that are implementable. Because we understand buy-in from community members and elected officials is fundamentally critical to implementing any plan, stakeholder engagement is critical to every project. We also understand the realities of day-to-day work in a City planning department and the difficult decisions planning commissioners often face. We use this foundation to help create plans that are workable, realistic, and legally defensible.

We specialize in comprehensive planning and community and neighborhood based services. Our experience is varied as we have practiced in both large cities and small communities.
