We believe that successful waterfronts begin with sound planning, time-tested urban design and an understanding that the water’s edge belongs to the public.

If you missed our event, please donate & we will send you a link to watch the “Connect the Waterfront”  show. It is truly epic — not to be missed, both entertaining & informative.
