Scope of Services and Experience

MUNICIPAL PLANNING

Scope of Services

Municipal governmental agencies periodically desire the preparation or update of a municipal master plan.  A municipal master plan is a document that normally contains a community vision concerning the type and location of future land use expansion, potential economic development opportunities, infrastructure expansion and/or improvements required to support future land use expansion, potential annexation areas, planned improvements for expanded public facilities and community services, as well as recommended revisions to municipal land management systems such as zoning and subdivision regulations.  Beyond the vision, PPC also typically prepares a set of specific community development strategies that can be used by municipal government, small business owners, economic development organizations, special interest groups and local residents to implement the vision for future community development.

Similar to county comprehensive plans, the preparation or revision of a municipal master plan involves the analysis and forecasting of community demographic characteristics and regional economic trends, the forecast of anticipated demands for various types of land uses, an evaluation of the capacity of available infrastructure, as well as an analysis of natural resource trends and issues.  Geographical information systems (GIS) are typically established or expanded to apply spatial analyses to land use planning, as well as enhance the presentation of planning proposals to municipal decision-makers and local residents.  Various approaches to community involvement are always incorporated into the municipal master planning process in order that the master plan can more accurately reflect and address community issues and community development opportunities.

Municipal planning services also include the organization and preparation of specific ordinances and land use regulations.
