Common Sense Community Design

Bruce Liedstrand

Welcome

 
 

I love good cities, large and small.  Working with cities in a variety of ways since 1964, I have learned that the essence of cities is community - people coming together with other people.  City planning and design should focus on people - making the city useful and convenient for them and giving them pleasure.


Just as cities are enriched by differing cultures, decision-making is enriched by differing perspectives.  My own perspectives acquired over the years include that of city councilmember, city attorney, city manager, redevelopment director, community development director, and consultant/advisor to cities.  And I continue to learn every day from other people with other perspectives and good ideas.  Together we continue to learn to make good cities and good community.


In my work with cities I have also relearned the old lesson of using common sense as an essential tool for good decision-making. 


Thus, the title:  Common Sense Community Design.
