Our people make the difference.

Brandon Gonzalez, AICP

Brandon is the Phoenix Office lead and Southwest Regional Manager for Alta. He is an experienced, multidisciplinary urban planner and a natural leader who specializes in long-range transportation planning, corridor/Complete Streets plans and studies, trail planning and design, and context sensitive solutions. His professional background in both transportation and land use provides a unique perspective on how the two are intricately related and inform each other. Brandon has lived and worked in small, rural towns as well as large cities and brings an understanding of the opportunities and challenges that different communities face when it comes to active transportation designs and solutions.

“Our built environment, and how we plan and design it, heavily influences our daily lives; it impacts our decisions on travel, how we connect with one another, our mental and physical health, safety, and quality of life. I’ve always had a fascination with cities—how different they can be and the unique history that influences how they are today. I’m fortunate to work in a field that creates places and mobility choices that truly connect us with the places we live.”
