The Environmental Planning Group at EcoPlan provides decades of experience in preparing environmental documents that provide decision-makers with defensive purpose and need statements, thorough impact evaluations, and technically feasible mitigation measures.
EcoPlan prepares Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for a range of technically complex actions. Our environmental planners lead teams of in-house specialists who incorporate associated laws and regulations (for example, the National Historic Preservation Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Clean Water Act) into the NEPA process and consider the resources they are designed to protect.
Environmental planners also coordinate with interdisciplinary teams, project proponents, and their designers to develop effective yet technically and fiscally feasible mitigation measures to minimize impacts on sensitive resources. EcoPlan’s efforts often begin early in project or program development with initial siting or feasibility studies and continue after environmental compliance with mitigation implementation, construction monitoring, and supplemental analyses as needed.
