Beginning in 1986, Planning Company Associates, Inc. managed major land use/entitlement programs for private sector coalitions. Through the successful development and entitlement of comprehensive, complex land use specific plans our team learned the value of a strategic approach to transportation infrastructure.
For over the past decade, Planning Company Associates, Inc. has been applying the maxim “make the problem bigger” to public and private transportation infrastructure projects, programs and problems throughout California. Our strategic approach truly looks to understand all aspects of a transportation problem, thus the larger regional potentials for truly solving the problem. Including funding and implementation elements to our strategic plans is merely an enhancement of our services to our valued clients.
Planning Company Associates, Inc. is more than just another specialty consulting firm. We are partners with our clients and with public agencies and officials in truly solving transportation infrastructure problems. Examples of our work throughout our history includes:
Land Use Specific Plans/Entitlement Programs
CENTRAL CITY WEST SPECIFIC PLAN. Planning Company Associates, Inc. worked in partnership with the City of Los Angeles to develop the Central City West Transportation/Land Use Specific Plan. We managed the resultant, award-winning plan that includes 25 million square feet of commercial development, over 3,500 affordable housing units, and comprehensive regional and local transportation improvements.
Strategic Transportation Infrastructure Programs
DENVER UNION TERMINAL. Planning Company Associates, Inc. was hired and successfully represented Denver Union Terminal Railway Corporation – the owners of Denver’s Union Station – in negotiations with the City and County of Denver, the Denver Regional Transit District, the Denver Regional Council of Governments, and the Colorado Department of Transportation in the sale, transfer, funding and development of the existing Denver Union Terminal property and station as the region’s Intermodal Transportation Center and hub.
DOUGLAS PARK – BOEING REALTY CORPORATION. In partnership with the City of Long Beach and Boeing, Planning Company Associates, Inc. developed an innovative regional transportation mobility approach utilizing Intelligent Transportation Systems (“ITS”) components to more environmentally and economically improve mobility in this urban area. The result: the project’s transportation impacts were reduced from over twenty-three unmitigated impacts to three; the City of Long Beach staff supported the regional transportation system approach we developed; and the project was approved by the Long Beach City Council in December 2004.
