TOWN PLANNING

Town and city transformation happens through strong planning and leadership.

Jakubiak & Associates, Inc. consults with municipalities seeking expertise in town planning, zoning, and community development. Towns and cities often contact us when they recognize that the path they are on is not sustainable and a course correction is required. Our services are key to municipal decision-making about the direction and pace of urban development. This often starts with detailed growth scenario analyses. We prepare master plans for smaller areas like the Downtown City Dock of Annapolis where the focus is on redevelopment, public open space, and urban design.
We are also skilled at conducting thoughtful zoning and land use analyses and translating findings into workable strategies and regulations for municipal development and conservation. We advise local officials on zoning issues, development review, and town planning administration. Since our services help guide community development, we place great emphasis on applied research, communication, and consensus building. These are just some of the means. The ends are whatever you envision them to be. We help clarify and implement your vision for your town planning.
