MHCP COLAB is a collaborative practice, owned by firm principal, Melissa Hege, AICP, LEED AP.
The firm specializes in identifying and pursuing urban infrastructure related investments, which add exponential value to cities. These include waterfront parks, bicycle and pedestrian trails, and complete streets—streets which have comfortable and protected zones for bicycles, pedestrians, cars, and transit. She advocates and builds support for these projects by developing relationships with public agencies, local non-profits and foundations, property owners and the community.
Firm principal, Melissa Hege, has written critical and inspiring articles about elevating the quality of American cities through better planning. She has lectured and taught graduate, college and middle school courses on this subject.
