Urban Design

MAKERS offers a full range of planning and urban design products and expertise, including comprehensive plans, environmental management programs, urban center redevelopment plans, zoning codes, and design and development regulations. Because of this breadth of experience, our firm is able to translate broad policy objectives into vision, then refine them into planning concepts that are ready to be implemented through development regulations, capital improvements and public-private partnerships.

MAKERS has completed plans for dense urban neighborhoods as well as small rural towns. Most of our projects focus on physical improvements such as park systems, greenways, gateway structures, and street improvements.

Our plans successfully achieve community development as well as environmental and economic objectives. For example, improvements for University Way, Lake City Way, and Market Street (in Ballard) have increased pedestrian activity, merchant sales, and commercial redevelopment and plans for the town centers of Mill Creek, Redmond, Auburn, Juanita, and the Thea Foss Waterway, Downtown Everett and the Wenatchee Waterfront have helped these centers become vibrant places.
