PlanningLand Use & Zoning
COG works with communities throughout Massachusetts to address land use planning and zoning needs. We undertake comprehensive land use studies and plans, and we craft zoning solutions to address a community’s most pressing needs, including economic development and environmental protection. COG has an excellent track record of working with local officials, property owners, and neighborhood residents to develop zoning that responds to a community’s vision of itself. In support of that effort, we use our Geographic Information System (GIS) expertise and create visually engaging public presentation materials to help communities visualize the results of land use and zoning policy decisions.
