Our Land Use Planners provide expertise in the areas of permitting, land use and development issues, comprehensive planning, Growth Management Act and development regulations. Our Planners have a proven track record working with our region’s city, county, and state agencies. In addition, our team’s previous experience working in the public sector provides us with the insight to design regulatory solutions that work.
In collaboration with our other departments, our planners are involved throughout the life of a project – from initial site analysis and feasibility to recording final entitlements. They ask questions of our clients to better understand the project goals and vision. They ask questions of the jurisdictions to better understand any site limitations and regulations.
Staff then goes to work with strategic thinking, preemptive problem solving, and client advocacy. Identifying red flags early on, raising questions, and creating paths that can take the project where it wouldn’t otherwise be able to go. They do all this for one reason - so you can be sure you've gotten the best possible information and advice.
