What is Planning?

Planning is a process designed to engage residents, stakeholders, and local governments in defining a sustainable vision for their community. Successful planning leads to the development of policies and strategies to guide informed decision-making regarding many elements related to the growth of a community, including land use, public infrastructure, economic development, and community revitalization.

At Wilson & Company, our team of adept planning professionals understands the profound impact that development policies and related infrastructure investments have on society, today and in the future. We conduct disciplined studies that identify and mitigate risk through analysis, common understanding, and honest discussion of performance so that positive results are witnessed. Whether evaluating the potential cultural, historical, and environmental implications of growth, predicting shifts in transportation system needs, or addressing road safety issues, our planners are dedicated to fostering positive transformations within communities.

Backed by a diverse team of experts, our planners collaborate with mappers, surveyors, architects, GIS specialists, technicians, construction managers, and engineers spanning civil, traffic, mechanical, electrical, railroad, hydraulic, and structural disciplines. Drawing from Wilson & Company’s extensive pool of multi-disciplinary professionals, we assemble a specialized team tailored to the unique requirements of each community and project. Together, we strategize projects that align stakeholder needs, crafting inclusive, secure, and sustainable solutions.
