Service Overview

Bringing out the Best in our Communities.  

When it comes to the Summit Planning department, our primary goal first and foremost is to listen. Communities know what they want; it’s our job to translate their vision into reality. Our team creates the foundation of our plans by combining inclusive and innovative engagement processes with thorough data analysis. In this way, our department is able to capture the needs, desires, and goals of each and every municipality we work with.  

Our practical understanding of local government and multi-disciplinary expertise is leveraged with each plan to produce actionable recommendations that help communities shape a resilient future. Together with our clients, we can create better, brighter communities—ones that will benefit us now and will continue to thrive long into the future.
