Development Review

Our diverse municipal engineering team is dedicated to prompt, technically accurate development reviews, while respecting the delicate balance between the community and the developer’s interests. We have more municipal subdivision and site plan review experience than any other regional consultant. 

We have found that nothing adversely affects or concerns local residents more than drainage and flooding impacts from development. We understand that added traffic is also a common concern that arises with new development. Other important elements include proper utility sizing in accordance with master infrastructure plans, together with determining appropriate recapture costs for future developments.  We incorporate these items into every review, as part of a proven yet customizable checklist of items that ensures a consistent and fair process. 

We have also performed construction inspection services for the majority of the  projects on behalf of our communities. Our field personnel’s primary function is serving as the “eyes and ears” of our client communities during infrastructure construction. They are effective in interacting with municipal staff, developers, and contractors to ensure that projects progress properly without negative impacts to adjoining property owners and the public at large.
