Neil is Principal at Neighborhood Workshop and a Co-founder of Small Development Counts. He is an urban planner + designer with a focus on aligning municipal regulations to enable local wealth-generating outcomes through small-scale development. This is accomplished using a real estate development pro-forma-based approach that quantifies the physical and financial effects of various policy decisions. He was recently featured in the prominent northwest-based think tank blog, Sightline, for his work to provide financial justification towards the political action allowing up to six units on a single-dwelling lot for those seeking to provide below-market housing affordability.
