Lisa Neergaard is returning home to Dallas county. As a native she has a deep appreciation for all that Dallas is, and an excitement for what it will become. Lisa's interest in neighborhoods and housing began while gaining her BA in American Studies from University of Massachusettes, Boston. She fell in love with the scale of the city, and its relationship to the Charles River. That passion for neighborhood lead her to pursue a Master in City and Regional Planning from the University of Texas, Arlington. In that time she worked with the City Design Studio as a policy and planning intern; working on project ranging from West Dallas Urban Structures to food truck regulations. She returns to Dallas after working on a variety of Theme Park design projects in Los Angeles, and is delighted to refocus her attention on projects that strengthen and grow local communities.
