P.U.M.A. helps create, grow and refocus organizations to advance downtown and commercial corridor revitalization, community development and other civic agendas.
P.U.M.A.’s approach to strategic planning identifies business centers within community development organizations and seeks operational solutions to improve effectiveness, accountability and fiscal sustainability. We engage clients in building consensus among board members, staff and constituents, resulting in a seamless transition from plan to implementation.
P.U.M.A. conducts feasibility studies that include market research and financial analyses with a focus on infill development and the reuse of existing buildings, particularly those of historic significance.
