Ask Joe Minicozzi, AICP, Urban3

Ask the Expert Lunch

Share This

Joe Minicozzi, AICP, Principal of Urban3, uses analytic tools to examine the implications of different growth patterns on city coffers and highlight the value of walkable, mixed-use development. He helps cities and regions across the country (as well as Canada, Australia and New Zealand) look at:

- Land use
- Urban design
- and Economics

To see how they’re doing financially, and what they could be doing better. Given the recent budget shortfall and Mayor Turner’s paradigm-shifting priorities, we could not be more excited to bring Joe to Houston at this moment.

“He can dazzle you, your boss, and your local governing board with his numbers. His tax analysis of comparing compact downtowns to urban sprawl is really awesome. He shows that even the crappiest little downtowns well outperform the traditional power centers we’ve all come to loathe (or love?).
It’s really hard to argue with his analysis. And how he delivers the message. It’s powerful.”
