Urban design is increasingly shifting to focus on community design. That means prioritizing the community’s well-being above anything else and aligning urban planning and design around principles of equity and inclusion and the collective interest. Many cities like Sacramento and San Antonio are showing growth beyond urban development by taking active measures toward diversity and inclusivity.
