Peter J. Park served as planning director of two large U. S. cities over the last 16 years. In Milwaukee and Denver, his integrated approach to comprehensive planning, urban design, and development review resulted in clear visions for sustainable urban development, places of high quality design, and streamlined development permitting systems. He led the preparation of downtown plans, numerous neighborhood plans, and comprehensive zoning code updates in both cities.
