Bring a vision to life.

A clear, consensus-based vision serves as the foundation for a promising and bright future. Planning helps communities make balanced decisions that are efficient, effective, and practical while remaining aspirational. Strategic, community-led plans guide the day-to-day operations of a community. Through plans, studies, and ordinances, a community can protect and leverage its unique assets while promoting the future it seeks.

Plans that Work
We deliver with purpose. We provide our clients with custom-made plans that are actionable, realistic, and unique to the specific needs and vision of the community.

User Experience
We put ourselves in the shoes of stakeholders to ensure our plans, reports, and ordinances are accessible and easy to read. Boring reports are a thing of the past.

Interdisciplinary
With over 25 service areas, our collective knowledge and expertise is both deep and wide. Our planners work in a cross-functional and collaborative manner.

Public Engagement
Early and frequent intentional engagement with a community creates support and excitement around a project. We collaborate with community members and stakeholders on project details and customize inclusive public engagement events to generate public support and strengthen project outcomes. Success means more productive public participation, quicker buy-in and less uncertainty around projects.

Technology
In an increasingly visual and tech-based world, our team has the skills and experience to help bring your community’s vision to life with maps, graphics, renderings, data, video, and websites. Pictures being worth a thousand words means that high-quality visualizations can bring people together in ways that language and narrative cannot.

Equity
Communities thrive when we plan with all people regardless of race, income, age, gender, geography, or ability. We bring an equity and human-centered lens to our work to ensure a welcoming process leads to inclusive outcomes.

Comprehensive Plans

Visions and long-range plans serve as the foundation for decision making, action, and future study of a community. Our community planning team works with stakeholders to help them envision and articulate their desired future. We bring a balanced, interdisciplinary, and community-oriented approach to the plans we work on.

Zoning Ordinances and Development Codes

A vision is nothing without the tools to guide action and implementation. Our team helps you create codes to make your vision a reality. We bring innovative zoning techniques to communities of any size.

Community and Economic Development

Remaining competitive in a changing world doesn’t happen by chance. The most successful communities proactively and strategically address business growth, housing, marketing, workforce development, reinvestment, and changes in market realities and technology. Our holistic approach to community and economic development will position your community well for the future.

Planning and Zoning Administration

Our team often serves in a staff augmentation role to help communities with limited budgets, small staff, and times of transition. We provide seamless service to our clients and their customers (residents, businesses, property owners and developers).

Small Area Plans

Areas of importance or special need often need study and planning beyond what the comprehensive plan traditionally offers. We prepare small area, neighborhood, corridor, downtown, and master plans for communities of all types and sizes.

Special Studies

Many communities strategically pursue study of topics, issues, and opportunities to advance their goals or tackle a problem. We’re prepared to help you with a study of your priorities. Examples of special studies include: Community Development • Neighborhoods and Housing • Public Engagement and Communication • Downtown and Placemaking • Site Readiness and Workforce • Community Health • Equity • Strategic Planning • Technology • Resilience and Sustainability

Public Engagement

Every project has a neighbor. As planners, we’re natural collaborators and facilitators. We bring people together through traditional and non-traditional tools and techniques. We work to make the planning process accessible, meaningful, and fun.

Urban Design

A community’s aesthetic design sets it apart, improves quality of life, and attracts visitors and business investment. In collaboration with our landscape architects, we help your community envision new spaces and outline the rules and regulations to guide future development. We bring a design approach to projects of any scale or type whether at the neighborhood, corridor or site level.

Funding and Grant Writing

We work with federal, state, regional planning organizations, and local communities to identify and successfully acquire funding assistance for your projects.  To date, we’ve brought millions in financial assistance to our clients.

Code Enforcement

The enforcement of a community’s rules and regulations helps to maintain a high quality of life. We serve as code enforcement support in several communities. Our approach is fair, consistent, and empathetic.
