How We Help Make an Impact
Projects That Affect Communities
Community is a lot of different things, right? It’s the people that are in it, it’s the built environment, it’s the jobs, it’s all of that mixed up together. The heart and soul of Urban Assets is targeting projects that address all of those things.
More Affordable Housing
With close to 400 units planned within two projects currently under construction, diverse housing options will benefit residents as well as the surrounding communities.
A More Engaged Community
Part of our code of ethics is serving the needs of the community. This is the primary reason planners do their job and it begins with communication and engagement. Listening to the community forms the basis of all the work that we do in planning.
Improved Service Delivery
Planners are everywhere, often in the background, making things happen. Our role is really about taking very complex situations, understanding them from all sides, and having the technical and personal skills to move each project forward.
$300 Million in Community Projects
We champion community projects, like a first-time minority-led major project in Madison that secured a grocery store for a neighborhood at risk of losing one, or the revitalization of an idle, abandoned, and underutilized site that was unlikely to be redeveloped solely by the private sector, and the replacement of a central city clinic helping to alleviate extreme hardship for their most vulnerable patients.
Positive Community Impacts
Urban Assets’ overarching mission is to positively impact our community. The map below shows projects we have worked on in the Madison region that support our mission.

Community Engagement Ambassadors
A collaborative team of high school students form our Community Engagement Ambassador team to help engage our community in projects taking place in Madison.
The role of a Community Engagement Ambassador, or CEA, is to ensure that all of the community is able to participate in city events, in particular communities of color.
Our current team participants are Jada Matson, Daisy Barrera, Marcio Sierra, and Michel Hernandez. Be sure to check out their Instagram Page at urbanassets_cea.
