Lisa Beyer, PLA, ASLA

I’m always on the move, walking, dancing, running. My two feet are my primary mode of transportation. City streets account for a significant portion of our shared civic space. I am driven to help communities re-envision these public places to incorporate living infrastructure, create opportunities for connecting, and promote a healthy and active environment that’s good for people and the planet.
