SullivanPLAN offers extensive experience and a personalized approach to understanding and preparing for responsible land use change, whether that is creating an entirely new place or re-developing existing ones.


SullivanPLAN works with professional biologists to ensure the biology satisfies the land use rules. Together, we write Environmental Impact Studies, or EIS, to present the science in a way that clearly addresses the rules.


SullivanPLAN has been studying the impacts of climate change on our communities for over 10 years and has some well-developed solutions to deal with what we call Climate Planning.
