Established early in the history of the company, the Planning Division offers services to both public and private entities.
By definition, “Planning is the design of the built environment.” Our Planning Division looks at this process through a land development and regulatory perspective, enabling us to provide the highest quality services balanced by environmental, social, political, aesthetic and financial considerations.
To remain current, the Planning Division receives and reviews site plans for various municipalities to ensure that plans meet all municipal code requirements as well as attend city council and planning and zoning board meetings and serve on various development review committees.
