Urban Planning

Foothill Associates experienced staff specializes in functional, pleasing landscapes that minimize environmental impacts and provide lasting, economical, and innovative solutions. Existing architecture, history, and community heritage become part of our design language for streetscape and urban design work. We design spaces for people to enjoy, while sensitively protecting the fragile environment of which urban and streetscape projects are a part. Foothill Associates has prepared design guidelines for communities defining circulation, design character, and spirit in these places. Great care is taken to integrate both the needs of the stakeholders and residents. Attempts are always made to provide comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian access, connections to existing trail systems, expanding or enhancing adjacent green belt connections, and allowing for easy and safe vehicular passage using the space available to its greatest advantage.
