Far beyond simple land use plans, our planning work integrates innovative data analysis, meaningful community engagement, and the use of conceptual illustrations, digital models, and virtual tools to help communities explore and understand future growth and development scenarios.

Our planning approach involves facilitating a dynamic and transparent process that engages key stakeholders, property owners, agencies, and the community in a step by step process of discovery.

While we establish goals and a framework for evaluating potential planning solutions, Confluence transforms our client’s vision into successful strategies that effectively guide future community growth and development. Our comprehensive planning experience includes analyzing and providing recommendations for future land use, parks and trails, transportation infrastructure, aesthetic design guidelines, and economic development opportunities.

Our broad client base includes municipalities, governmental agencies, community associations, and private developers - and our work typically involves balancing competing goals, identifying appropriate future growth expectations, and developing regulatory tools and policy recommendations.
