We give form to community aspirations, and shape vibrant, sustainable, and equitable cities.
As part of a comprehensive General Plan Update led by Dyett & Bhatia, D&B has prepared Environmental Justice Factbooks to provide a baseline understanding of the Environmental Justice challenges that exist in Sacramento. Each of the five Factbooks contains maps, infographics, and other background information that provide context for EJ topics as outlined in the 2016 Planning for Healthy Communities Act (SB1000).
Dyett & Bhatia is assisting the City of Oceanside with an ambitious planning effort for the city's future, including a concurrent General Plan Update (the first in over 30 years), creation of a Smart and Sustainable Corridors Plan, and development of a community plan for South Morro Hills – one of the last remaining agricultural areas in coastal San Diego County. The Vision and Guiding Principles reflect the voices of thousands of residents engaged in the process, and will provide the foundation for plan strategies, goals, and policies.
Centered along the San Diego River, Mission Valley is the city’s retail destination, and home to a large number of hotels and offices, as well as residential uses. Development is highly auto-centric and disconnected from the trolley system that extends along the valley. Dyett & Bhatia led the consulting team that prepared an updated Community Plan that was adopted by the City Council in September 2019. D&B also led EIR preparation.
From largely vacant land, the Isabel Neighborhood in Livermore will grow to be the Bay Area's newest transit-oriented neighborhood
of 10,000 new residents and 9,500 new jobs. D&B developed a specific plan and prepared the EIR for this thriving new neighborhood, centered around the proposed Valley Link train station, along the busiest in-commute corridor in the Bay Area.
