Municipalities need to promote economic development while simultaneously following smart growth principles. D&B works with municipalities, stakeholders, and the public regarding land use, transportation, and environmental plans and projects to further sustainable growth for future generations.
Whether through master planning efforts, brownfield revitalization plans or transportation improvement projects, D&B’s expertise helps build sustainable communities. Our planners often work hand-in-hand with engineers, environmental scientists, and architects ultimately responsible for design and implementation of municipal plans and projects. This interaction helps achieve open dialogue for realistic and cost effective subsequent steps, whether for infill development impact analyses or regional planning efforts.
D&B also fully recognizes the importance of disaster mitigation planning and resiliency projects in the post-Hurricane Sandy environment. Weaving these measures into existing and future waterfront and downtown revitalization efforts, from village to town/county to regional levels, is a key consideration in all planning efforts.
