Who We Are
Our firm has extensive experience working on a range of planning projects on sites, in communities, and within regions.
In a world that is constantly changing, we believe in the need for flexible, adaptive, and responsive planning and design.
Our approach to this work emphasizes dynamic visioning, community and stakeholder engagement, extensive analysis, and creative problem-solving. We help plan for vibrant, resilient, and inclusive places. These efforts protect local and regional ecosystems while addressing contemporary challenges facing municipalities and organizations such as climate change, loss of open space, and poorly planned development. Our focus is to help our clients build on their existing assets, realize new possibilities, and plan for a bright and abundant future.
What We Do Best
Our firm has extensive experience facilitating and managing planning and design projects with municipalities, state agencies, developers, property owners, and non-profit organizations. We firmly believe in place-based solutions grounded in local knowledge and systems. This enables us to craft plans and designs that reinforce community character, support regenerative development, and promote ecological integrity.
“RP&D’s knowledge of resiliency and permaculture is extensive and their ability to share that knowledge with you and anyone else within earshot is enviable and a much-needed resource for any project.”
