Land Development Permitting

Resource. Integration. Conservation.

In the over 20 years which EARTHRES has been partnering with clients to achieve project goals, we have long recognized that land development design, coupled with site enhancing environmental protections, afford our clients a project site that is not only economically feasible but environmentally friendly.  Land development inherently alters the landscape of your site, but the design professionals at EARTHRES understand that collaboration and communication with governing agencies channels a design that will best serve our clients, as well as serving the community. Our goal for your project is to showcase it as a symbiotic relationship with the conservation of existing natural resources and your project vision.


Our team at EARTHRES understands that every project is unique in both the client’s goals and the actual site itself so we approach every project as a cooperative design between development and preservation. EARTHRES’ intuitive style of land development design contributes to approvals for your project. Extensive design knowledge united with EARTHRES’ experience of regulatory permitting advances your vision into reality. With the wide array of clients and projects that EARTHRES has successfully earned agency permit approvals, we have proven ourselves time and time again as strong allies to our partner’s project successes.
