Urban Planning

Project Types

Planners use their skills in all three economic sectors—public, private for-profit, and private nonprofit. Their work involves the development and redevelopment of distinct and varied communities, including:

  • inner-city neighborhoods
  • rural small towns
  • sprawling suburbs
  • metropolitan downtowns
  • commercial districts
  • new residential and mixed-use developments
  • recreational and cultural venues

The more obvious work of urban planners is in the shaping of the physical future of the community. This may include careers in comprehensive planning, physical planning, community development, enterprise planning, economic development, environmental preservation, transportation, housing, and land use.
