We look beneath the surface of municipal finances to unearth economic potential that can create sustainable futures for communities of all sizes.

You love your community, but all that love hasn’t translated to a functional budget and a sustainable future. Let us help you become your community’s champion.

Urban3 takes a different approach to land value economics, property and retail tax analysis, and community design. We empower communities with new insights into their own data. Our work makes a quantifiable case for better city planning, urban design, and smarter growth. And we back up our stories with facts and figures.

We make the complex human. We demystify tax codes, government jargon, and municipal finance data, allowing communities to clearly understand the economic impact of development.

“Urban3’s work was an eye-opener. Anyone interested in encouraging economic growth should build on a foundation of understanding the tax implications of differing choices. Urban3 provides that critical foundation.”
