Development transforms neighborhoods

The best projects are community-driven, not contentious

Community engagement on the road to entitlements shouldn’t feel like a battle. In fact, the process should activate people who usually sit on the sidelines so you have a bigger coalition of supporters. That’s what coUrbanize does.

The result?

Better community conversations, from concept to construction.

“With a project of this scale and this much potential development, we really wanted to find new opportunities to access community members who couldn’t show up at board hearings and wait six hours to testify.”

“Community engagement and outreach is a critical part of how we plan our projects. The pandemic’s limitations on in-person engagement made it harder to interact in person with the local community. coUrbanize has helped us through this period in very meaningful ways. Overall, what we’ve heard from the community through coUrbanize has been positive, productive, and very useful to the project.”

Brian Collins
EVP and Director of Development


“It is rare to come across a team of people who are so enthusiastic about their product and equally so customer service oriented. As developers, we have always thought it important to engage with our neighbors and the community at large. We need that feedback, good and bad, to improve what we build. coUrbanize has proven to be invaluable.”
