Most cities are struggling to address infrastructure needs and amenity expectations with limited resources.

We connect planning, engineering and finance perspectives together to help community leaders educate and engage residents, enhance quality of life, reduce infrastructure costs and minimize environmental impacts.

VERDUNITY is the planning and engineering connection we’ve been looking for as city managers. They have a fiscal and environmental sustainability approach that minimizes infrastructure costs as opposed to maximizing them. Their team of professionals is intelligent, responsive, and innovative. VERDUNITY is skilled in bringing a fresh approach that is fantastic for mediating issues that often arise between developers and the City, and between cities. We are looking forward to continuing our strong relationship with this company.
— Michael Kovacs, City Manager

These guys checked out of the big consulting world and are working to carve out a spot for themselves doing principled, Strong Towns-like work. It is tough to be such a pioneer, but we need small firms of innovators like this if the Strong Towns message is going to become the default approach for local governments. If you are in Texas and want to chat with professionals who get it, get a hold of VERDUNITY. If you are in a different part of the country and are trying to start your own innovative firm, they are pioneering a great model for you to keep an eye on and draw inspiration from.
