What we do

CCCE works on planning, design, and research projects that further economic resilience, cultural diversity, public health, social justice, and environmental sustainability.

We conduct research, interpret policy, analyze conditions and opportunities, and provide cutting-edge designs. We support and facilitate partnerships, design, and convene participatory processes, enabling effective civic engagement in complex government procedures and implementation of new visions, programs, and plans.

Our inclusive approach engages a broad spectrum of stakeholders including residents, community organizations, and businesses, and builds their capacity to shape decisions that impact daily life, the environment, and climate.

Projects

CCCE works with community groups, non-profit organizations, public agencies, and private firms on comprehensive planning, design, stakeholder engagement, and community development efforts. We provide customized teams with the requisite skill set for specific projects and draw upon the deep expertise of the broader Collective for additional input.
