The Berkley Group

About The Berkley Group

The Berkley Group is a local government consulting firm with experts specializing in planning, zoning, environmental program support, administration, executive recruitment, organizational assessment, finance, public works, project management, community involvement, public safety and more. We bring a collaborative approach to our projects and an array of professional resources. We understand the challenges facing local governments today.

We have wide-ranging expertise in comprehensive plan development and updates. We have worked across historic towns, cities, and rural counties to implement zoning and other ordinances that create a balanced regulatory framework resulting in vibrant thriving communities. Additionally, our historic preservation planners help communities face the pressure of growth, while protecting their unique character, history and assets.

We provide a wide-reaching, inclusive, and informative community engagement strategy that empowers the public, engages people in the process, seeks out feedback, and maintains continued public participation.

We provide planning and design services that create more livable and resilient communities. We have experts to manage your environmental programs for a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee. We can also incorporate Envision guidance and best practices to improve whole systems design, resource conservation, environmental preservation, risk mitigation, and more.

Finally, utility-scale solar facilities are generally a passive land use requiring few local government services and generating little noise or emissions; however, the potential land use impacts to the greater community must be considered.
