Worked in four communities using, revising, or updating the Master Plan. Special focus on creating documents that are usable by the Governing Body, Planning Commission, and staff in guiding and selecting development projects on a daily basis.
Master Planned Communities
Established a concept and specific format to direct major projects to create detailed Master Plans for commercial, residential, and resort developments. These 10 projects encompass nearly 10,000 acres and are in various stages of construction.
Neighborhood Corridor Plans
Initiated and oversaw neighborhood preservation programs, downtown revitalization, and corridor plans. Included in these efforts were large citizen participation components and technical consultants as well as multiple jurisdictions and major land holders.
Annexation Studies and Plans
Assisted in developing policies and plans in guiding annexations and negotiating annexation agreements.
Linked the Master Plan and Zoning through a Land Use Intensity System based largely on traffic. Oversaw a Federal Demonstration Grant for Transportation Demand Management using Origin Destination Studies, Focus Groups and Computer Modeling. Directed a major corridor traffic analysis on how to identify alternative land use and transportation solutions for revitalization of a commercial corridor.
Responsible for developing work programs, RFQs, and RFPs to achieve Governing Body and Planning Commission and Special Task Force objectives. Work includes small staff teams to large staff teams, including legal, financial, marketing, transportation, hydrology planning, and construction experts.
Citizen Participation & Mediation
Managed public involvement programs that enabled and facilitated participation by key stakeholders. Projects have ranged from small special interest groups involvement to over 3,000 residents, businesses and property owners.
Every project effort involved negotiation and mediation, in addition to facilitation and generating alternative solutions.
Achieved a mediated solution between a 2,000 unit master planned community’s Homes Association and the land developer.
The technology for communication has been well used for the developers, public officials and general public to better understand the complex and expensive projects that affect them.
