More than land planning.
UpFront is more than just land planning consultants. We have the experience and knowledge of working on both the public and private side, but also as an appointed public official. We have written codes, enforced the codes and negotiated for changes to codes. We know what options a project has and how to overcome obstacles to create great projects.
