Taecker Planning and Design relies on key principles to guide its work:

Respect Each Place. Ground planning and design solutions in the local culture and setting, while simultaneously addressing real-world financial and technical demands. Work with communities to remain true to their history, while building a foundation for the future.

Promote Sustainability. Address both short-term outcomes and long-term economic, social, and environmental health. Built environments should reduce resource use and greenhouse gases, while fully leveraging public and private investments.

Make Connections. Enhance the larger urban, natural, and social networks to which projects are connected. Integrate projects with social goals, transit use, watershed health, and local economy.

Cultivate Livable Communities. Good planning embodies a community’s values in physical form. Cultivate community ownership and lasting commitments through meaningful discourse and informed decision making.
