Charlie Creagh holds a Master's Degree in Design of Sustainable Urban Environments from Northeastern University and earned a BA from the University of Maine.
Charlie's research and interests draw parallels between environmental design, automotive-oriented urban planning ideals of the past, and the use of active transportation to enhance ecology and economy in today's urban environments. Charlie understands that thoughtful planning and design can mitigate environmental challenges and promote more vibrant, people-focused communities. His role at Alta Planning + Design has allowed him to contribute to numerous bicycle and pedestrian feasibility, planning, and design studies at the Town/City, County, and State scales. Charlie focuses on Complete Streets planning and design, trail feasibility, and bike share system planning and expansions in both rural and dense urban communities across New England and NY. Prior to his work at Alta P+D, Charlie gained experience researching renewable energy site locations in Boston and conducting public outreach to gauge responses to various energy production facilities. Charlie is a former volunteer with the Boston Harbor Association and the Boston Cyclists Union. His prior classroom and field experience includes teaching the principles of ecology, sustainability and conservation at The Ecology School in southern Maine, the New England Aquarium, and at Boston Public Schools.
