Job Description

Karp Strategies is an urban planning strategy consulting firm that builds stronger communities and thriving cities. We partner with our cross-sector clients to identify their unique needs and provide tailored solutions. We take analysis to action to allow our clients to make better decisions – and ultimately, to build stronger communities, economies, and cities. We deeply value our holistic analytic methods, and maintain strong core values around equity, access, and community engagement when working on planning and development projects. We work on projects around the country, with projects currently underway or starting across the NYC region, and New England. Our team works at the sweet spot where data, people, and place intersect: we strive to understand what drives change in places, and how people, businesses, and institutions exist and can thrive within that change. We value and celebrate diversity and inclusion in our team, and we share a commitment to social, racial, and economic justice. Karp Strategies celebrated five years in June 2020, and we’ve grown tremendously since inception from a one person to a team of 15.

With current projects ranging from economic and community development planning initiatives to stakeholder analysis and engagement, from infrastructure feasibility and resiliency studies to real estate advisory, Karp Strategies is working with many of the industry’s most dynamic partner firms and clients on pressing, timely challenges facing the country, region, and our city. Karp Strategies is active in the field: our team members are involved with APA-NY’s Urban Design and Diversity Committees, WRISE, ABNY, IEDC, NYBC, CoreNet, OHNY, RPA, Coro, ULI….let’s just say we are plugged into the action and keep our finger on the pulse. As our company kicks off additional projects, we seek to meet thinkers and doers interested in joining us who care as much about urban change and neighborhoods as we do.
