Planning + Economic Development
For forty years, Saratoga Associates has worked with counties, municipalities and the private sector to build both fiscal and ecological sustainability into community plans. Our plans recognize the building blocks of a community: public gathering places, pedestrian–friendly spaces, and the connections between home, work, commerce, and recreation. Our economic development studies help our clients identify their best assets and devise strategies to capitalize upon them. Our approach to public participation ensures that the diverse constituencies are recognized and integrated into the planning process, which in turn translates into public ownership – essential to plan adoption and implementation.
