Public Vision Research LLC (PVR) is a San Francisco-based consulting firm specializing in sustainable planning, urban design and community development. We facilitate collaboration with local leaders and public agencies to produce extremely realistic and responsive simulations of urban designs, open spaces and transit systems.

We work with clients to develop the most effective approaches for researching community interests, mapping assets, producing reports, making presentations, documenting plans, and facilitating participation in charrettes and workshops that generate powerful public visions. PVR produces presentations using media strategies that ensure understanding and build support.

Our combined experience in working with diverse communities to envision positive futures shows how to draw out the power of collective intelligence to generate public visions that benefit all involved. PVR is dedicated to facilitating forums that encourage community wisdom to produce plans invested with inspiring values, compelling visions and effective strategies for realizing plans through sustained partnerships.
