Our integrated approach equips clients to plan and develop policies and solutions based on the community’s people, economy, and natural environment.

Our balance of strategic policy and planning skills, community engagement expertise, and over 40 years of conducting environmental evaluations set us apart from other firms. We keep implementation in mind, balancing long-term planning, community attributes, stakeholder objectives, and cost while maintaining community support. We shape places that will find market acceptance; enhance local economies to provide ongoing employment and business opportunities; and facilitate community stewardship of the natural environment.
