Land Planning

At McGill Associates, our multidisciplinary team is comprised of accredited, award winning and experienced professionals that successfully work with a broad range of clients to establish vision, goals, and strategies to achieve desired community results. We understand that creation and regeneration of sustainable and memorable public places requires cultural, environmental, and economic investment. Furthermore, we value the importance of community involvement and build effective engagement strategies into each project in an effort to foster the necessary community support. Our planning professionals use this input to create sustainable designs that integrate environmentally-conscious concepts with low impact development techniques. We serve our communities through an ecologically sensitive planning approach that makes use of topography, landform, natural resources, vegetation, community input, infrastructure and buildings, resulting in more livable and sustainable projects. Furthermore, our plans strive to integrate environmental, community, and economic goals in a way that allows for future generations to live in a healthy and dynamic community that improves their quality of life.
