Dan Reed is an urban designer who helps communities make better places out of their most plentiful and well-used public spaces: their streets.

Through succinct written communication and engaging maps and diagrams, Dan can make complex planning ideas legible to the public, encouraging community participation. He is passionate about helping communities, especially suburbs that are seeking to urbanize, respond to changing demographics, and address new demands for a more diverse and sustainable transportation network.

In Charlottesville, VA, Dan is helping to recast a major commercial corridor connecting the downtown to the University of Virginia as a complete street, with more vibrant sidewalks for local businesses, traffic calming to accommodate cyclists, and new public gathering spaces. In Gaithersburg, MD, Dan is working with the city to plan out a circulator to connect future growth areas and serve an increasingly diverse and transit-dependent population.
