A Profile Of The Planning Center

The California-based firm celebrates its 30th anniversary. Its growth has coincided with the formative years of the planning profession.

Where would we be today without planners? Literally nowhere. One of the country's most innovative planning firms shares three decades of experience in staking out the cutting edge of planning. Their story tells us as much about where planning is going, as it does about where it's been.

"The Planning Center has been instrumental in creating the general plan for over 30 cities and counties, and more than 200 specific plans for both private- and public-sector clients. ."
