Our Approach

Community Planning & Land Use Consulting, LLC (Community Consulting, for short) was founded to provide a fresh, cooperative approach to planning and zoning consulting in northern Michigan.

Having worked on both sides of the governmental counter, we understand the intricacies of the planning process and law, and have learned, through experience, that a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation can go a long way towards getting projects accomplished in a timely manner.

Whether we are facilitating an applicant’s request, or acting as a community’s contracted professional planner, our understanding of a community’s long term planning goals, our professional relationships, and a firm-yet-flexible approach to modern planning and land development set us apart from the “old guard” of land use planners in the Traverse City region.
