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.
