the MUSE Method: inspiration to implementation

MUSE Community + Design offers inventive and inspiring solutions to help communities manage change. MUSE creates processes and plans to help communities set and realize their own goals, while answering key questions of how, who, when, and how much.

MUSE Community + Design specializes in creating plans, policies, and processes that help communities set and achieve their goals. MUSE excels in providing a fun, people-focused approach to draft and implement realistic, tailored solutions that celebrate communities’ assets. Our team is well-versed in land use, zoning, mobility, economic development, historic preservation, and more – and has worked on behalf of communities across the Chicago region, nationally, and internationally.
