Land Use & Urban Design

Agnew::Beck helps local governments develop appropriate tools to implement long-range plans and regulate land use. Zoning codes, development regulations, subdivision rules, and small area plans help communities direct the type and location of development. Agnew::Beck specializes in creating effective regulations that speak to the unique goals of each community.  We often work in communities where land use regulation is controversial. Our work balances the need to help preserve and enhance community character while limiting regulation so that projects are financially feasible. Agnew::Beck brings a balanced perspective to help facilitate discussions about which regulatory tools are helpful to meet each community’s long-term goals for development.
