We offer a range of Land Use Planning services, from regional and comprehensive plans to small area and civic ones. Coupled with innovative public engagement techniques and our multidisciplinary approach to planning, our team provides community-driven plans packed with the visual tools necessary to publicize and execute your unique community vision.
We assist municipalities to develop bold, long-range visions that express community aspirations to strategically direct growth, leverage local assets and encourage private investment. The hallmark of our success is always a unified vision; a more connected community; and consensus among elected officials, community leaders and citizens.
Any planning process begins by asking the obvious question: what does the community want? To ensure our plans reflect citizen’s desires, we employ a range of engagement strategies, including online surveys, stakeholder meetings, community workshops, and focus groups. To supplement these efforts our Communications Studio develops innovative brand strategies, interactive websites, promotional videos, and social media campaigns, all of which have been shown to increase plan interest, public workshop attendance, and online survey participation.
Regional trails and greenways that connect major assets, attractions, or residential nodes can encourage active living, attract tourists, and generate private investment. We work with community leaders and stakeholders, landowners, land managers, and trail users to create linear parks and trail systems that supersede jurisdictional boundaries and contribute to regional destination development.
Our planning and design teams frequently collaborate with local leaders to develop illustrative small area plans that can highlight and communicate key development areas, goals, and policies contained within broader comprehensive plans.
