EPD’s proactive and unique blended approach has resulted in the approval of successful entitlements for residential, industrial, commercial and retail developments. We have advised both private and public sector clients from due diligence through the entitlement process. We coordinate with stakeholders and staff to garner support and provide the best solution to achieve the goals of our clients. This includes extensive community outreach and engagement, and established relationships that provide effective negotiations with local governments across California. 

EPD’s in-house transportation and environmental planning and GIS services work seamlessly with experts in design and technical fields to offer supportive services such as engineering, landscape architects, biologists, cultural and visual simulation specialists, who are available to assist with projects as needed. EPD builds and manages the top development, planning and environmental teams due to our wide-ranging experience on projects of all sizes and types. Working hand-in-hand with our clients, we complement the capabilities of companies by supplementing expertise through successful collaboration.

We thrive under challenging situations and tight timeframes and keep projects moving forward to the highest results. 

We have worked in jurisdictions across California and neighboring states, managing, preparing and processing the following types of entitlements. For each of these efforts, we customize our services to the unique goals of each client and to address the local jurisdictional conditions for each project. Our decades of experience, creativity, in-house comprehensive services and knowledge of the entitlement process is why EPD adds value to our clients’ projects.
