Reinvent Phoenix

Charlier Associates assisted Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company (DPZ) on a large TOD implementation project for Phoenix, AZ. Reinvent PHX is a collaborative partnership between the City of Phoenix, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Arizona State University, St. Luke’s Health Initiatives and other local organizations. The focus of the project is to develop sustainability action plans for five districts along the existing light rail line in Phoenix, AZ using a holistic community engagement process.

Charlier Associates contributed to this project in several ways. CAI is provided:

CAI worked closely with the project team and engaging the neighborhoods through a robust public engagement process. This included participating in several week-long charrettes over the course of the project, (the first of which took place in March, 2013). The charrettes, the multidisciplinary collaborative approach and other stakeholder meetings helped to reveal local issues, garner community investment, and ensure transportation aspects of the projects are developed in a context sensitive environment that align closely with the desired land development strategy and community values. The two year project was completed in 2014.
