Master Plans & Programming
Carlile · Macy landscape architects work with the consultant team and project stakeholders to identify opportunities and constraints within the context of the specific project site and the surrounding community and landscape. Project goals are established and maintained and program elements are arranged on the site to maximize resource efficiencies, utility of space, and positive social/community interaction. By developing meaningful connections and relationships between on- and off-site facilities, we generate designs that encourage quality experiences through aesthetics as well as usability.
Local codes, ordinances, and approval processes vary over the years and across municipalities. Navigating through them while trying to get a project off the ground can be time-consuming and often frustrating. Our knowledgeable staff stays current on the requirements of cities and jurisdictions across Sonoma, Marin, and San Francisco counties. Our local relationships, thorough understanding of the process, and demonstrated experience can be crucial ingredients for a smooth and successful approval. In conjunction with our civil engineers and land surveyors, we provide complete entitlement approval services and can assist at any scale that’s required.
