DesignWorks is an inter-disciplinary and collaborative team of architecture, landscape architecture, graphic design, and planning professionals that bring innovative Urban Design solutions to improving public spaces and private development proposals to better serve the needs of the community. The DesignWorks team is housed within the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department and engages with policy makers, citizen committees, and developers to make sure that regulations don't inhibit high-quality development that meets the vision for the community. As a public service, Urban Design envisions beautiful, sustainable, people-centered places that build and serve diverse communities, and establishes processes that make successful development possible.
