Since joining TSW in 2001, Caleb has been in charge of public planning efforts ranging from corridor studies, to pedestrian and bicycle facilities, to area design guidelines. He has also led numerous downtown plans focused on engaging residents, civic leaders, business-owners, and other stakeholders to develop realistic, community-based plans and implementation tools.  Caleb is known for his work in helping communities shape their future through form-based codes. He has authored over two dozen such codes that continue to shape the character of new development in areas as different as Downtown Atlanta and the rural crossroads of Blythewood, South Carolina. As the former Chair for the Atlanta chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Caleb devotes a large amount of time outside of work to the advancement of smart growth and place making.  Caleb also volunteers time to community meetings and lectures about the benefits of sustainable development patterns and code and zoning reform for the general education of citizens, business owners, and municipal staff.
