Comprehensive Planning

We have learned that people’s primary interest isn’t in planning documents, planning itself, or the process. What they are deeply interested in are the quality-of-life outcomes that successful comprehensive plans can deliver. Great plans are not measured by the heft of their implementing code, but by their ability to clearly and meaningfully show the way to achieving the hopes and desires of a community. Great plans are visionary and must be supple enough to allow for unexpected opportunities and challenges, and even some experimentation. But above all, they are grounded by a collective understanding of a community’s past heritage, current values, and future aspirations.

For the last two decades, Fregonese Associates has worked with communities across the nation to create meaningful planning documents to help guide their future growth.  Our breadth of experience means we bring a new and innovative perspective to the comprehensive planning process.  Working in innovative places such as Portland, Los Angeles, and Denver has provided our firm with state-of-the art tools and strategies.  Moreover, we have a successful track record of returning to places where we have worked to implement plans we helped create.  We understand how to create practical, implementation-focused plans that are based in local market realities. Our comprehensive planning projects include:

  • Forward Dallas Comprehensive Plan – Dallas, Texas
  • East Baton Rouge Comprehensive Plan – Baton Rouge, Louisiana
  • Tulsa Comprehensive Plan – Tulsa, Oklahoma
  • Blueprint Denver – Denver, Colorado
  • PlanTucson – Tucson, Arizona
