Zoning is design.
Zoning is central to urban planning. It is not distinct or separate from it. Zoning sets the standards by which communities govern the quality of their development. That’s why we take nothing for granted.
Our firm’s zoning work starts by studying each client’s unique community. Actual measurements ensure that dimension requirements in the zoning code are designed to achieve the intended results.
Fairness, due process, transparency, and professionalism also need to find their way into zoning codes. Tested and still creative processes are essential and must be customized to the specific design and development vision of our clients.
