First City Development is a company built around the concept that great places are the result of decades of great vision realized. Alan Gray, President of First City and an AICP City Planner and development consultant, started First City with a desire to flesh out the plans he spent the first decade of his career developing. These were plans he helped design as a Regional Planner in the Florida Panhandle, focused on economic development and sustainable infill development, a Community Redevelopment Agency Administrator, and an AICP City Planner for the City of Pensacola.

“A city is not an accident but the result of coherent visions and aims.”

Alan Gray, AICP
