Craven Thompson & Associates, Inc. has been actively engaged in land planning since the creation of the firm. Initially, this role was fulfilled by surveying personnel who possessed a knowledge of subdivision layout and construction. With the massive increase in subdivision regulations, planning guidelines and platting requirements, it became beneficial to our clients to employ site planners.
These professionals, however, were not and are not just site planners; they are also urban planners, community planners, city planners, and administrators. The administrative role relates to our ability to deal with a myriad of regulations and agencies in the processing of a project for entitlements and permitting. Federal, State and local regulations have become so demanding that a knowledge of the political structure, zoning regulations, landscape regulations, land use plans, local concerns, demographic make-up and State and Federal Laws must be available to the client. Our staff has this knowledge and is actively working with the regulatory agencies to keep abreast of and aid in formulating regulatory policies.
