Cultural Resource Planning and Management

The New England cultural landscape we experience today evolved slowly over 10,000 years of human habitation and development. That evolution continues, but its speed now threatens the very quality of life that has continued to attract people to settle in this region.

 

The challenge for New England residents and businesses is to solve the balancing of resource protection and appropriate economic development in an environmentally and fiscally sound way.

 

Our focus is helping clients seize this moment in time to make our communities better than ever. Identifying, researching, documenting, and evaluating cultural and historic resources are the methods utilized. Partnerships enable clients to help contribute to a regional vision that allows all of us to live and work in neighborhoods that are uniquely livable.
