I'M DAVID BERNIKER.

I'M A PLANNER, URBAN DESIGNER,
& LOVER OF CITIES.

Connecting people, places, and policy is my defining focus. With an eye toward sustainability and climate resilience, I aspire to create inclusive communities, environments, and economies that are safe, healthy, and accessible to all people.It is about seeing opportunities, challenges, and the relationships between the physical infrastructure (the pipes, roads, parks, and open spaces) and social infrastructure (the places and organizations that allow for the exchange of ideas).

 

As a trained architect, planner and urban designer with 25+ years, in the public and private sector, I am skilled at connecting dots between projects, programs, and polices and creating an iterative and flexible road map that affects change.

 

My professional and volunteer experience includes visioning, strategic planning, consensus-building, and project management. I have shepherded a wide range of development and long-range planning projects through the planning process. I understand the regulatory environment while still being true to the fundamental purpose of good urban design. Because good design is creating places that people connect to.
