Planning (Entitlement) Services

PCG serves as lead consultant to coordinate the consultants through the entitlement process. We have an on-going working relationship with numerous consultants in each of the professional practice areas to best fit the consultant with the size and needs of the project. This provides the most cost effective and efficient pairing to successfully navigate the entitlement process. As the lead consultant, we will coordinate with architects, traffic and civil engineers, surveyors, environmental planners, and attorneys to complete applications and compile supporting documentation to submit to the applicable jurisdiction. We actively track and monitor the project through the entitlement process, which includes coordinating with the development and construction team through the building permit process.
