PLAN*et conducts the community engagement processes for all the projects that it leads. We tailor our community outreach and engagement processes to each client and project. Our community outreach and engagement techniques and tools have proven successful in a wide variety of circumstances. We offer a wide variety of public engagement choices; including on-line, event-based, public meetings and hearings, focus groups, surveys, workshops, and charrettes.
Creating Plans and Policies
PLAN*et develops Comprehensive, General, Master, and neighborhood plans for local, county, state, and tribal governments. Our plans are supported by elected officials and by residents at the ballot box. Our plans are implemented. We pride ourselves on creating planning and public engagement processes unique to each project and tailored to our clients' individual needs. Many of the plans and policies developed by PLAN&et have been awarded by the Arizona Planning Association, Arizona Society of Landscape Architects, and Arizona Forward.
WHAT WE DO
Supporting Healthy Communities
PLAN*et is a member of the Arizona Alliance for Livable Communities (AALC) and participates on its Leadership Committee. We are an Arizona leader in conducting Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) for Arizona jurisdictions, School Districts, and Tribes. The firm organized and facilitated Healthy Community Design training webinars and workshops through the State for the Arizona Department of Health and continues to promote health design through our volunteer work, and participation in the AALC.
Linking Places to People
PLAN*et Principal, Leslie Dornfeld, created Arizona's first regional plan for pedestrians. She developed the still active Maricopa Association of Governments' Design Assistance Program, which has resulted in over $15 million of investments in pedestrian facilities over the past two decades. Leslie led the development of the region's first Complete Streets Plan, and played a significant role in the adoption of the City of Phoenix Complete Streets Policy. PLAN*et has led or participated in the development of a variety of pedestrian, complete street, bike and pedestrian, and recreational trail plans throughout Arizona.
