Effective planning policies can make the difference
between a community that is barely "getting by" and a vibrant, energetic city charging towards the future. Collins
& Schoettler should be your choice when searching for a consultant to prepare your community's General or Specific plan.
We have a wealth of real-world experience with policies and programs that work.
We strongly encourage community participation in the formulation of plans - our experience shows that a plan prepared with citizen
input will stand the test of time and enjoy broad community support. General and specific plans that are written in easily
understood language, contain reasonable policies and implementation strategies, and are prepared so that early public involvement
is encouraged, are more likely to be accepted by the community and adopted by the decision-makers. This approach will reduce
the potential for legal challenges and also the number of times the plan is amended in the future.
