Urban Planner, Public Engagement Specialist
Taylor Vande Velde is an urban planner with experience in urban design and public engagement. Her robust knowledge of urban design and the public realm lend to her ability to create realistic illustrations of the current and future built environment. She joined the team in 2018 after graduating from the University of Missouri Kansas City with a Bachelor’s in Urban Planning + Design.
Taylor has experience with community-driven vision plans and historic preservation goals and implementation strategies. She appreciates the challenges each community faces and recognizes that unique places require unique solutions.
Taylor enjoys attending the Kansas City Chiefs, Royals, and Kansas State football games. When she’s not rooting for the clearly superior teams, she is volunteering with the KC Pet Project, attending concerts, and watching The Office (like a true millennial.)
