Planner Outsourcing

Since most of our team members come from a city planning background, Masterplan understands what it takes for a city to run at peak capacity as it grows. In fact, our staff has a combined 150+ years of experience reviewing commercial, industrial and residential site plans, building plans, and sign and fence permits in former roles working as city employees.  These specialists have first-hand experience to know the challenges municipalities faces day to day.  

With the level of mastery brought by our team, Masterplan has served on behalf of city planning departments, such as the City of New Braunfels and the City of McLendon-Chisolm. Most recently, we have worked as the interim city planning department for the City of Duncanville, where we have evaluated and made recommendations to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council on best practice zoning regulations. 

Many municipalities we work with are busier than ever. We are here to support your internal team or take over your team efforts with our comprehensive capabilities.
