ESA helps communities shape their future by creating a sustainable vision and plan for change.
For decades, we’ve partnered with a wide range of public- and private-sector clients to generate positive change in the places we all live: urban waterfronts, rural floodplains, coastal villages, and suburban greenbelts.
Our team provides sound science and engineering, technical guidance, and policy recommendations to decision makers charged with managing, protecting, conserving, and restoring these valuable assets.
By combining practical knowledge and specialized expertise, we help communities develop and implement plans that prepare them for the future through improved transportation systems, climate change mitigation and adaptation, floodplain and shoreline management, and addressing environmental health inequities.
We guide our clients through the entire environmental and community planning processes—from vision and concept to plan and project development, evaluation, and implementation.
ESA’s integrated approach focuses on balancing our clients’ goals and desired outcomes with the need to protect critical resources, address socioeconomic concerns, and enhance the resiliency and livability of our communities for future generations.
