Mosaic approaches community planning differently. Our work focuses on the
crucial intersection between the people in a community and the places those people inhabit.

Our Story

We are a mathematician and a community organizer who came together to form Mosaic, not out of a sudden stroke of inspiration, but after years of working together at WFN Consulting to help communities across the U.S. become better, more equitable places to live. In our combined 30+ years in the planning and community development field, we have found time and again that when important community decisions are made, some of the people whose input is most needed are not at the table. Not because they are not welcome, but because the community participation process was not designed to seek out, invite, and engage the myriad of people and viewpoints encompassed in a community. 

We formed Mosaic to help communities plan differently. Our diverse backgrounds and experiences work together to provide multidisciplinary planning strategies that focus on people as much as places.

Our Approach

At Mosaic Community Planning, we envision assessing community needs and crafting creative solutions as similar to completing a puzzle. We specialize in finding all the “pieces” (citizens and stakeholders diverse in income, ethnicity, age, gender, physical/mental ability, and perspective) and bringing them to the table. The effort is sometimes challenging, but the result is always unique, and often beautiful. 

Mosaic’s principals approach the firm's work from varied backgrounds and perspectives that give us a more holistic understanding of the communities where we work and allow our firm to take a multidisciplinary approach to our planning.
