Planning for the future

Planning provides a strong foundation for successful public sector and private sector projects – ensuring that social, economic, and environmental factors are considered. 

Fisher recognizes that the planning process is just as important as the adopted plan itself. We embrace stakeholder and community participation while recognizing individual client interests. Our goal is to provide solid research, collaborative participation, and thoughtful analysis that lead to preferred directions.  Fisher’s planners then assist our clients to organize recommendations that are clearly communicated and strategized.

We believe in uncompromised design, in places that are people-centric, in Smart Growth & Urbanism, that land use & transportation planning are integral, that community prosperity means economic growth & social equity, that we must plan for sustainability & resiliency, in housing variety and affordability, in facilitating healthy lifestyles, in providing leadership & education, and in getting work done.
