Michelle van Tassell, Edmonds Parks Comprehensive Planning Committee:

“…[Anindita] and her team did an outstanding job in the following:

  1. Efficiently organizing town meetings; staying on task

  2. Giving attendees a voice; actively listening to all who had an opinion

  3. Communicating and educating effectively

  4. Drawing upon national and even international examples of possible streetscape designs

  5. Conceptualizing a plan which incorporated attendees’ ideas, while still maintaining a clear framework

  6. Demonstrating knowledge and experience

We do hope that the CREÄ-designed Master Plan will come to fruition…”

Benjamin Alexander, City of Springfield, Missouri:

“...I had the opportunity to work with Anindita in a variety of roles - from project manager, to a designer and community planner.  In all instances I found Anindita to be an innovative person in her design and technical capabilities and an energetic project design leader.”
