Land Use Planning

Horizons Engineering’s land planning practice has the technical depth and experience to deliver a wide range of professional services to guide public and private developers through the complex process of developing environmentally sound land use plans. Services range from preliminary site feasibility assessments through master planning and detailed, on-the-ground design and layout of proposed projects.

Horizons Engineering has prepared land use plans for tracts of land measuring thousands of acres to smaller, high intensity projects. The firm is well known for working with clients from the initial feasibility of a project to the final creation of construction documents and receipt of entitlements.

Land use planning involves a number of steps that must be coordinated with local communities and a wide range of state and federal regulatory agencies. Other key steps involve financial and market considerations. Horizons’ planners are accustomed to working in a collaborative, team environment with other professionals, as well as with regulatory agencies at all levels.

Horizons Engineering’s seamless approach to integrated, multidisciplinary planning, design,
permitting, and construction will ensure a smooth and efficient process from concept to completion. Communication throughout all stages of the planning and development process is one of the cornerstones of Horizons’ success. The long term relationships built with clients and the trust that has been created with regulatory authorities provide the basis for the fact that most of the company’s business is from repeat clients.
