What We Do
The Fred Carl, Jr. Small Town Center is a community design center in the College of Architecture, Art and Design at Mississippi State University. We provide a range of design and planning services for communities and research about small town challenges.
Over the past four decades, the Small Town Center at Mississippi State University has contributed a significant body of knowledge about small towns in modern America.
The Small Town Center provides a variety of design services including community engagement and visioning; master planning; project feasibility studies; downtown revitalizations; bike and pedestrian planning; research; creating and building; grant writing; and design seminars and workshops.
