Gary Boutwell is responsible for
performing data collection, general planning research, and
planning analyses for projects carried out by Pedersen Planning
Consultants (PPC). He prepares land use databases and applies
statistical models to various types of planning analyses.
Boutwell also develops geographical information systems (GIS)
that are applied to most projects completed by the firm. He
also manages the firm’s local area network and security systems.
Boutwell completed an inventory
of almost 9,000 housing units in the City of Rock Springs,
Wyoming. Using ArcGIS software, he input this data into
attribute tables associated with the Rock Springs GIS to
facilitate the completion of various project tasks for the City
of Rock Springs Housing Master Plan. Boutwell completed spatial
analyses of available community assets and various physical
constraints influencing future opportunities for future
residential expansion. He also developed a statistical model
that was applied to the project to develop population and
housing demand forecasts.
Boutwell also coordinated
completion of a housing inventory that was made in conjunction
with PPC’s Hot Springs County Housing Assessment. The inventory
included all housing units in the towns of Thermopolis, East
Thermopolis, and Kirby.
Boutwell has completed land use
inventories, developed geographical information systems, as well
as participated in the evaluation of demographic, economic and
land use trends, for the Town of Alpine, Town of Afton, Town of
Granger, Town of Thayne, and the Town of Star Valley Ranch.
These analyses and geographical information systems were
completed in conjunction with the firm’s preparation of
municipal master plans for each of these Wyoming communities.
Boutwell expanded an existing
geographical system for the Town of Walden, Colorado to
incorporate various other types of spatial information, e.g.,
land use, soils, and utilities data that supported the firm’s
completion of a municipal master plan. Land use data input into
the Walden GIS was derived from an inventory that he completed
for all land uses within the community.
