Lattice – A new approach to Comprehensive Planning

Project Type: Planning Platform | Code
Project Status: Ongoing
Dates: November 2020 – Present
Team: Plusurbia Design

Lattice enables communities to craft a vision for their future through better comprehensive planning.
Plusurbia Design developed a Comprehensive Planning tool called Lattice for planning professionals, elected officials, and regional stakeholders. Visit The Center for Comprehensive Planning.

Released as a free online tool, Lattice is part of a not-for-profit effort to help communities rapidly develop a planning framework that uses current best practices to address a specific area’s economic, environmental, and social challenges. Lattice provides a step-by-step approach to comprehensive planning through an interactive prompt algorithm.

The Lattice Planning Engine: Through an interactive questionnaire, Lattice dynamically generates a plan template that aims to meet the needs and achieve the goals of the planning region. The answer to each question prompts Lattice to generate the ideal plan structure and automatically includes general language for elements, goals, and policies tuned to user input.

Lattice is the product of years of research by planners eager to develop a better way to create comprehensive plans, especially new ones or those needing significant updates to incorporate best practices.

Plusurbia Design is committed to improving planning beyond its practice through The Center for Comprehensive Planning.  The Center provides resources, including guidance documents and interactive tools, to equip communities with the information they need to envision and create new, calibrated regulatory frameworks.
