Welcome - my name is Kevin Klinkenberg, and this site "The Messy City" is my blog and company website. I started blogging on urban planning and design issues in 2007, and began working in the field in 1993. Please feel free to connect with me on any of the social media sites listed here. Thanks for reading.

A new Store

By request, I've added a new page to the site that features some select writings. These are either short booklets of key lessons learned or popular blog posts that have been formatted into attractive, printable documents. As time goes on I plan to add much more to the page, but for now I've put six documents up to purchase. And, they're cheap!

Check out the Store and let me know if you have special requests.
