Our Approach

PLAN*et is a Phoenix-based community planning firm that is the result of decades of experience coming together with one purpose: providing high quality planning, policy, and design expertise to governments, non-profit, and private clients. The Arizona Certified DBE company is a PLLC.  PLAN*et clients benefit from our staff's extensive experience, and our commitment to celebrating and respecting the individuality of each community. Many of PLAN*et's projects and processes are award winning. Every project we undertake is uniquely tailored to the individual community and its environmental and cultural context.

Our Story

Every business has a beginning, and this is where you talk about yours. People want to know what opportunity you saw or how your passion led to the creation of something new. Talk about your roots--people wanna know you have some.
