Environmental Planning

Complying with the demands of environmental regulations is critical to project success. BergerABAM's experienced natural resources team begins with a thorough, on-the-ground assessment of the project and the potential environmental issues. If the project will involve state or federal agencies, it is essential for the agencies to become involved early to sketch out probable issues and requirements. This early involvement, which often includes local jurisdictions, is key to saving considerable project time and money.

BergerABAM's natural resources staff is often asked to help jurisdictions develop or update ordinances. This work requires expert knowledge of the topic and political skills because the ordinance must be reviewed by the agency and formally accepted by the jurisdiction. Staff members are also often asked to review development applications submitted by others to jurisdictions to assess the conformity of the application with the jurisdiction's regulations.
