Cindy Trivisonno, Urban Designer

ASSOCIATE

Cindy is an Associate Urban Designer specializing in multimodal downtown and district master planning. Cindy values working directly with communities and building authentic relationships to inspire thoughtful design solutions. Throughout her journey, Cindy has worked directly with 11 municipalities (and counting) at a range of urban scales including station-area TOD planning on regional transit corridors, redevelopment scenarios for private and public properties, district placemaking, subarea plans, comprehensive design guidelines and standards documents, and outdoor dining structures for small businesses.

Beyond her professional achievements, Cindy is committed to giving back to the community and improving our neighborhoods through various organizations’ events, including tree planting initiatives with Friends of Trees and pavement removal projects with Depave. As an avid bicyclist and bike advocate, Cindy believes the bicycle is a powerful tool for connecting with and learning about cities and people. Serving as both a volunteer and employee of the Community Cycling Center, Cindy worked tirelessly to improve food access and security in Portland neighborhoods during the pandemic, serving up to 200 families per week. Cindy was instrumental in establishing and expanding Food Deliveries by Bicycle—a program that provided a reliable delivery of hand-packed culturally specific groceries on a weekly basis.

Cindy brings a valuable dimension of empathy to her work, educating and advocating for neurodiversity in the workplace and highlighting the importance of designing for diverse sensory needs. She continues to build her knowledge base and explore ways of integrating design and neurodiversity while promoting inclusive practices within design teams. She has shared her expertise on this topic at the Women in Leadership Symposium in 2022 and has delivered informative training sessions to design teams.

Cindy is a truly multi-faceted and immersive urban designer, exemplified by her curiosity and involvement in many realms of the community. Cindy is invested in expanding our understanding of design and our reach as urban designers to ensure that cities are truly inclusive and empowering places to live.
