Land Use

Policy 

We work with an array of companies and organizations to advance local, regional, and statewide policies that foster thoughtful planning and encourage growth in urban areas. With deep subject-matter experience in land use policy, we take a long view on the issue of development and its importance to maintaining livable, equitable, and prosperous communities. We help our clients advocate for increased density and more housing options to support population growth and expand economic prosperity.

Real Estate Projects

Our firm has deep experience guiding highly complex commercial, industrial, and residential development projects.  Our team is finely attuned to the region's political sensibilities and microclimates. We help both for-profit and not-for-profit development groups identify opportunities and gain community support to move forward. When regulatory challenges arise, we help our clients work with local governments and other stakeholders to keep projects on track.

Environmental

Issues

Environmental stewardship is an imperative priority for our region. Many businesses invest heavily to make their operations greener. We help them leverage these investments by increasing stakeholder awareness. Take the work we did for a large service provider. We designed a multi-channel public engagement campaign with their in-house team to boost enthusiasm and engagement about recycling, food composting, and waste reduction practices. The media jumped on the stories we pitched.
