Criterion is an urban and regional planning firm founded in 1979 to focus on the nexus of community planning and sustainability.  The firm has since become a nationally-recognized leader in planning techniques and tools that help stakeholders create places that are measurably more livable and environmentally responsible.

Most importantly, Criterion plans produce results.  In the past decade alone, Criterion-planned projects have saved over four billion pounds of global warming emissions from energy efficient growth and renewables development.  This experience supports clients throughout North America that seek innovative and durable solutions to community development challenges.

The firm is a member of the Congress for the New Urbanism, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the National Association of Environmental Professionals.
