Community Planning & Consulting
Developing and maintaining communities where people want to live, earn, play and learn requires an integrated, participatory approach. Local agencies are under pressure to do more with less, while still trying to recruit and retain businesses and residents. Federal funding programs and legislation related to energy efficiency, mobility, natural resource management and emissions reduction require cross-department and inter-agency collaboration.
While planning at the local level is important, the issues of mobility, energy, emissions, waste and natural resource management can only truly be resolved at the regional scale.
As a full-service A/E/C firm with breadth and depth of technical and geographic experience, we help clients understand the challenges of integrated planning. Our consultants work with agencies in their local community to identify opportunities, and then work in partnership with technical resources and national practice leaders to develop integrated, technically diverse teams. Whether doing a climate action plan, downtown redevelopment study or integrated regional plan, our teams always focus on implementation, results and transparency.
