The Toledo Design Collective (TDC) was founded in 2001 by Dick Meyers and Robert Seyfang with the core belief that thoughtful urban planning and design have the power to reshape individual lives, neighborhoods, and the greater City of Toledo. Over the past 21 years, the TDC has grown from a few dedicated volunteer architects and planners, to a full time staff, multiple interns every year, and a board of over 25.
