our Model

Values-Driven Social Enterprise

Pueblo, a values-driven social enterprise, is a participatory planning and design firm that provides professional services to government agencies, affordable housing developers, and community-based organizations (CBOs). As a social enterprise, our work with agencies subsidizes our work with CBOs so that we can provide low-cost technical support for community-driven plans, projects, and policy development. We focus our planning and design services on transit corridors, active transportation, parks and open space, and sustainability projects. We also assist in the development of advocacy campaigns, storytelling projects, public policy research, and provide technical assistance.

Our Beliefs Shape Our Approach

The experts already live in the neighborhood.
Our work is rooted in a simple principle: The voices of residents should be respected as experts, and they should dictate the design of their community.

Turning tools of harm to tools of empowerment.
We understand that planning, design, and policy have historically embedded generations of structural racism in the built environment. We believe that these tools also have the potential to dismantle unjust systems and ensure a sustainable future, by investing resources equitably and providing opportunities for neighbors to plan their own neighborhoods.

Design and planning that can heal communities.
We are deeply committed to social justice and incorporate an intersectional approach to planning by acknowledging the relationship between housing, transportation, public health and safety, and the environment. Only through this holistic approach healing in communities can begin.
