12 Amazing Last-Minute Gifts for Urban Planners and Data Geeks!

Our recent blog about our five favorite walkable, shopping streets to hit up for Small Business Saturday was so successful, we thought we’d follow it up with our top last-minute gift ideas for the urban planner or data geek in your life! Each awesome State of Placer has revealed their top three picks for the holiday season, guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day (Los Reyes Magos), Festivus or whatever other holiday you're celebrating this season. Check them out below!

Sidenote: if you're interested in giving the "gift" of better places to people in your city, we'd love to help you! We help cities make the case for great places by quantifying what it is that people love about cities (like walkability) and why it makes economic sense to make them better - not to mention by helping you identify the kinds of projects that will fit your budget, increase quality of life, and boost economic competitiveness!
