Craig Vickers



Craig Vickers is a dedicated, high-energy designer who has been a leader within Civitas since he joined the firm in 1990. His passion for the integration of urbanism and health drives his tireless pursuit of distinct, beautiful, and lasting public spaces, and his dedication to human expression through design, coupled with his love of nature, brings meaning and authenticity to his work.

Craig’s experience is broad, ranging from public space and park design in complex mixed-use urban environments to the planning and design of more contemplative environments, including cultural destinations, higher education, and corporate campuses. His experience working across the United States empowers his deep understanding of distinct communities and cultures, as well as his keen ability to diagnose complicated social and environmental challenges. Craig’s leadership ability and drive for excellence are exemplified in projects such as Belmar Town Center, the Salt Lake City Government District Master Plan, the San Diego Convention Center Expansion, Museum Park Miami, and the Stapleton Park Open Space System. His recent work on new residential communities in Colorado, including Windler and Painted Prairie – which was named National Community of the Year in 2022 by the National Association of Home Builders – is setting new standards for the future of residential development based on Craig’s visionary principles of design’s powerful role in community building and environmental stewardship.

Craig is a Registered Landscape Architect with a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University. He is actively involved in the community through his work on the City of Golden Parks and Recreation Board, The Colorado State University Landscape Architecture Advisory Board, The Design Review Board for the Belleview Station mixed–use development, and additional volunteer efforts. Craig has won ULI, ASLA, and AIA awards for a wide range of design projects, including visionary and built work.


“When I joined Civitas in 1990, we were driven to create places that formed better, healthier connections between people and nature – literally making people, communities, and whole cities stronger – and we’re still doing that today, yet still learning as we go.”
