Practices / Community Planning

Stewart’s Community Planning practice is a response to our clients’ needs for building healthy, equitable, resilient, and connected communities. Now, more than ever, our towns, cities, and counties are adapting to changing demographics, land use trends, environments, and technologies.

Many firms can write and update land use plans and development codes. Stewart is different in that we also utilize these documents on a daily basis. Stewart brings together planners, urban designers, landscape architects, and engineers to provide a data-driven and design-oriented approach that results in better plans and stronger communities. Our planners work with municipalities and counties across North Carolina and South Carolina, focusing on small to mid-sized communities and building on Stewart’s firm-wide focus on interdisciplinary collaboration.

As former public sector planners, we also possess insight into the complexities of governing. Our experience allows us to manage competing interests, clearly explain complex concepts, and develop realistic implementation strategies. We consistently strive to build long-lasting relationships with our clients and the communities where we work.
