Alta Planning + Design specializes in transportation, recreation, and innovation. Alta is ready to work hand-in-hand with you to plan, design, and implement your project or program.
Bicycle/Pedestrian Planning & Design
Enabling the choice to bicycle and walk is a simple, cost-effective solution to many of our world's complex health, safety, congestion, air quality, and livability challenges. Alta's pioneering planning and design services make bicycles an integral part of daily life, wherever you are.
Complete Streets & Urban Design
Complete Streets can improve safety, stimulate business, improve access, and beautify a corridor. Alta's planners and designers take a multi-faceted approach to corridor, streetscape/Main Street, and urban design, providing an integrated approach to improving livability in our communities.
Green Spaces & Great Places
Parks and open spaces make our communities and regions livable and environmentally sustainable. They help to guide urban form, and protect critical habitat and agricultural areas. Special sites, spaces and structures offer recreation and respite from urban life, and sources of community pride and identity.
The journey is as important as the destination. With thousands of built miles of bikeways, walkways, and trails under our belt, we see every challenge as a community's best opportunity. From a paved trail in an urban setting to a soft surface trail in a natural area, we've been there.
Innovations & Research
We’re at the forefront of the national movement to make more pedestrian- and bike-friendly communities, researching and employing cutting-edge planning and design techniques throughout our work.
Programs & Training
If you build it, they will come, but if you tell people about it, they will come in droves. Our unique Programs Team offers high-quality, customized bicycling and walking education, encouragement, and marketing services.
