What We Do

It’s about the vision YOU create.

Partnering with us offers the following benefits and results:

The Jubiak team remains available and engaged with your project until the plan is adopted. We are your planner in-residence.

We immerse ourselves in each client’s community,  arriving downtown with the supply delivery trucks and spending real quality-time with the stakeholders in the project. Planning commission meetings and public workshops get us halfway there. The long evenings on the phone, the early morning breakfasts, the discussions on the sidewalk or on the city dock — those are where we learn about a place and build the foundation for a plan that will be accomplished. Your plan.

In any community, growth and development plans can be contentious. We work hard to find the space where competing interests overlap. We create the room where spirited decision-making can take place.

Recognizing that our clients’ interests and concerns are top  priority, we work to uncover them. We believe a project is done well when citizens come to see their own city or town in a new light. We design plans for the community that you are and wish to become.

We design actionable plans. We always work to lay the foundation for immediate success during the planning process. We know that big plans and major changes require evidence that smaller things can be accomplished. For example, when doing master plans, we spend considerable time getting buy-in and commitments from key property owners. Our Development Concept Negotiating (DCN) approach results in physical master plans that are teed-up for implementation with private and public support. This takes skill and time, and we invest both on behalf of our clients.

Chris Jakubiak has a remarkable gift for finding the common ground between the public and private sectors especially in the area of downtown redevelopment and infill. I have seen him work to open eyes to real and viable possibilities for downtown infill and that type of original thinking is not easy to come by.Rob Scranton
Jakubiak has negotiated annexation agreements on behalf of the Mayor and City Council which has provided clarity and predictability to the growth the City has seen on its municipal edge. These negotiated agreement annexations have secured commitments from developers to higher energy and environmental standards and to supporting affordable housing, among other goals.John Pick
Jakubiak Town + City Planning have played a vital role in the city planning of Cambridge, from the award winning “City of Cambridge Comprehensive Plan” to the update and modernization of our zoning codes. Chris’ thoughtful and persistent approach in engaging with our Planning Commission and the public has made it possible for Cambridge to embrace positive and fundamental changes in how and where we grow and develop.Anne Roane
Chris Jakubiak recognized the difficulty that others had in understanding an essential city redevelopment concept and its relational value to the preservation and protection of a unique culture. He was able to handle stress and criticism with calmness and intelligence and wrote a brilliant Master Plan.Carol Nethen West
Jakubiak takes the time to listen and to engage and to find the areas where mutual interests can be advanced, which is the critical zone for success in the real work of urban planning. Caroline Moore
