Places that people cherish and thrive in are ultimately achieved via rigorous and thoughtful dialog across disciplines. Transportation Planning and Engineering combined with sincere and effective community involvement represent a collaborative and ultimately implementable decision-making process – a core principle of Center Forward. With that philosophy in mind, Center Forward Inc was established in December 2012 as a transportation and land-use planning firm.

Center Forward is 100% female owned and operated and is a certified DBE with the Georgia Department of Transportation (Vendor ID Code 12862). Center Forward has also been certified as a Female Business Enterprise (FBE) with the City of Atlanta’s Equal Business Opportunity Program (EBO) supplier ID #142069168 and as a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) with the City of Atlanta’s Small Business Administration Program (SBAP) vendor ID #1304597.

While the company is young, the knowledge is grounded by 20 years of Atlanta-specific planning experience. Private and public sector experience guides the firm, through the planning process with various agencies and communities, into realistic and outcome-based solutions.
