About Us

The Neighborhood Design Center (NDC) is a non-profit organization established in 1968. The mission of NDC has been to improve neighborhood livability, viability and sustainability by providing pro-bono design and planning services in support of community sponsored initiatives. NDC accomplishes this by mobilizing volunteer architects, planners, landscape architects, engineers, and other design professionals who donate their professional services to help groups in the initial stages of neighborhood revitalization efforts. NDC not only takes on projects that serve the public good but also strive to achieve the following community service goals:

  • Strengthen community participation in neighborhood improvement efforts
  • Educate the public about the value of good design, planning, and preservation as community revitalization tools
  • Serve as a catalyst for increased investment in neighborhood development
