Brandon Gonzalez, AICP

I’ve always had a fascination with cities – their energy, creativity, community, and diversity. Walking and biking present opportunities to truly experience our physical environment and understand how it impacts us each and every day. As Jane Jacobs said, “cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” I am so fortunate to work in a field that focuses on creating communities for everyone by involving everyone – leading to the creation of places and mobility choices that truly connect us with the communities where we live.
