Land Use and Community Planning
Communities face many opportunities and complex challenges in establishing their local land use plans and goals. Our expert planners assist cities, counties, and developers with a wide range of planning activities that balance community interests and character, environmental resources, regulatory and permitting requirements, economic development goals, and infrastructure needs.
We emphasize communication and consensus building in each planning process, actively involving and considering input from the community and stakeholders to define and agree on a collective vision. With support from our in-house publications team, our planners communicate the results of a planning process or project analysis by preparing documents that are user-friendly, clearly written, and thorough.
Keeping Community Needs at the Center
Our planners approach each project with a commitment to prepare a plan that is in your community’s best interest. Incorporating up-to-date planning tools, trends and best practices, we provide innovative, cost-effective planning programs, enhanced by our full-service design, environmental, and engineering expertise.
