Communities

Resilient communities program & planning

Thriving and resilient communities do not happen on their own. Community growth and revitalization come from engaged community members, deep respect for the place and culture, and mutually supportive environmental, economic, and social systems. We help communities in southern Illinois address these complexities. 

Our professional team of community planners, landscape designers, GIS and data experts, ecologists, and community engagement practitioners work with units of government, community groups, and residents to provide technical assistance toward creating great places in our region.
