The Toledo Design Collective (TDC) is a volunteer-supported, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions help further the mission of the TDC.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.

In 2001 Bob Seyfang and Dick Meyers founded the TDC on the mission of centering excellence and sustainability in design and planning services for our Toledo neighborhoods. The TDC has grown from a few dedicated volunteer architects and planners, to a full time staff of two, multiple interns every year, and a board of over 35.

Eugene H. Naujock

The 2021 Sustaining Campaign honors Eugene Naujock for his dedicated volunteerism to the Toledo Design Collective.
"We are fortunate to have access to talented architecture and planning students, their technical skills and creativity are an excellent resource and it is gratifying when these talented young people gain employment in the Toledo area after graduation. Working with neighborhood residents, the TDC has proven that our community need not accept ‘it’ll do’ planning for it simply will not do.”

Eugene grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After military service he attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee earning a B.S. in Journalism/Urban Studies and a M.S. in Planning/Urban Studies. Graduating in 1968, Gene joined the Toledo-Lucas County Plan Commissions where he spent his entire career. In 2004 Gene retired and joined the TDC bringing his vast knowledge of the government side of the planning process to the organization. His expertise strengthened the TDC’s voice in advocating for the difference design and planning excellence could make.
