MUSE Community + Design provides creative and inspiring solutions to improve places for people




The MUSE Method: inspiration to implementation

MUSE offers cities inventive and inspiring solutions to help manage change.

MUSE works to empower communities with out-of-the-box outreach and visioning strategies to help places set and realize their own goals, while answering key questions of how, who, when, and how much.

MUSE engages stakeholders, residents, and elected officials to maximize local assets, understand housing, improve mobility, and envision places as inclusive, vibrant, and prosperous.

Place-Based, People-First

Whether its at a block or a regional level, our work is embedded tackling communities’ most pressing challenges through the eyes of those who live there.
