Creating People Places

Our Services


At Centro, we believe successful, vibrant places come from passionate people, creative interventions, and sustainable practices. Our innovative services and tools support the development of each of these components, uniting them in service to the creation of a district, a neighborhood, a city center, a community—a place—for people to come together and thrive.


Strategy and Capacity

Centro has expertise in the creation and development of organizational approaches and funding strategies that create the capacity to guide change in your community.
