Planners have a tough job.

How do you create sustainable, thriving communities?

The first step = ensuring that planning decisions made today actually reflect the experiences of people who live, work and build their businesses there.

We help planning departments, regional planning agencies and consultants reach more people in the communities they serve.

Cities and Towns

“We’re always striving to make outreach more equitable and accessible, so adding a virtual component to our engagement practices is a huge leap forward. Ultimately, more community members shared their stories and ideas because of coUrbanize. That’s always the goal for community engagement – to activate more voices, especially those who too often go unheard.”

Where we work

Where is coUrbanize?


“coUrbanize helped us engage with more people in the community, which was ultimately one of the most important critical success factors for this project. Our partnership with coUrbanize helps us unlock more value for our clients, like the City of Detroit, while also creating a more inclusive partnership process.”
