Bottomley Design & Planning helps communities revitalize districts, streets, and public places. Work products include pedestrian- and transit-oriented infill development plans, regulatory documents, and concept designs and construction plans for streets and public spaces. BDP specializes in analysis and graphics that clarify policy choices for community development professionals and the public-at-large. Professional staff is trained in city planning, urban design, architecture, and landscape architecture. Urban design principles inform our approach to planning policies, and community development objectives guide our approach to physical design.
