We approach every planning project with the understanding that all projects require a unique solution. First and foremost, we strive for consensus. People’s opinions matter and, when it comes to planning a project, opinions can either strengthen or dismantle a project. That is why we take a full, hands-on approach by soliciting input in the planning process through interactive meetings with all of the project stakeholders.
Our approach also understands the importance of obtaining project approval. Whether a community plan or a land use entitlement, approval is required to ensure implementation. Our staff has intimate knowledge of approval obstacles – including special interest groups, property restrictions, zoning and regulatory constraints, and political realities – and is skilled at preparing plans that avoid these barriers and obtain approval. That is why our track record for project approvals is unmatched.
Our planning projects range from a simple zone change or site plan to complex, multi-faceted neighborhood or planned community plans to comprehensive, downtown, parks and recreation, and metropolitan redevelopment plans for communities. This gives us the expertise and confidence to handle any size project.
