A Solid Foundation Built on Experience and Talent

Established early in the history of the company, the Planning Department at Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc. (CGA) offers planning services to both public and private entities.

It’s All in the Details

By definition, “planning is the design of the built environment.” The Planning Department often views this process through a land development and regulatory perspective, enabling us to provide our clients with the highest quality service and professionalism in the industry. We’re completely devoted to balancing environmental, social, political, aesthetic and financial considerations.

To ensure all objectives are understood and met, we take our clients step-by-step through the design and planning stages, starting with a full disclosure of information and processes, such as all facets of governmental agency development review procedures.

Knowing the Latest Developments in the Industry

At CGA, our staff continually monitors state legislation for its impact on both the public and private sector. We stay abreast of national and local planning trends as well as local ordinances affecting land use, zoning and site plan regulations.

We utilize the latest technology to provide a superior level of resources for our clients. Our state-of-the-art 3D animation can visually demonstrate the future conditions resulting from zoning code changes or the built-out representation of a proposed site plan.
