  • Early reviews of proposed comprehensive plan amendments, even during the early development of the amendment before public hearings

  • Helping you understand the comprehensive plan amendment process, and how to bring it through your local approval process

  • Connecting you to planning and ordinance examples from around the region on various topics

  • Participating in technical advisory committees on various planning projects, such as environmental reviews, feasibility studies, and station area plans

  • Integrating your station area plan, small area plan, or neighborhood plan into your overall comprehensive plan
