Cities and suburbs alike face many challenges: providing sufficient housing across all income levels, changing retail landscapes, shifts in mobility, and now the uncertainty of a COVID-19 response and potentially long-term aftermath.  Scenario planning tools provide a way to “game out” potential futures to help understand how policy may influence our future communities.  Immersive, high-fidelity visualizations communicate planning designs to elected officials and the public bringing more informed and thoughtful decision making.  The concepts within geodesign provide a framework for evidence-based design and planning allowing us to test outcomes of policy decisions in the digital world so we do not make mistakes in the real world.
