B&L Receives Best Firms to Work For Award

For the seventh consecutive year by Zweig Group Read More


Community Planning

Community sustainability begins with sound planning, which happens when we understand the relationships between overlapping systems, from hydrological to financial systems and road networks to interpersonal networks. We carefully inventory existing conditions, analyze alternatives, and assess their feasibility. The foundation of our municipal planning process is a solid understanding that making good choices for the future means stopping to understand all the variables.

Our context‐sensitive approach helps to preserve and enhance scenic, aesthetic, historic, communal, and environmental resources, while improving safety, mobility, and infrastructure conditions. The professional planning staff at Barton & Loguidice are skilled at building public support and consensus because they engage the public and give them the opportunity to be part of the planning process. This is often the key to moving public projects forward.

B&L staff includes several who are credentialed with the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), and are well-versed in the most effective land use and planning methods. As a full-service consulting firm, B&L also has experienced engineers and environmental scientists who support our planning projects with their comprehensive knowledge and expertise. Our full-service approach is the prime reason B&L represents hundreds of communities as their designated consultant, and provides municipal planning services to many others.
