Firm Highlights:

Formed in December, 1982, Kendig Keast Collaborative (formerly Lane Kendig, inc.) provides planning services in the areas of LAND PLANNING, GROWTH MANAGEMENT, DEVELOPMENT IMPACT ANALYSIS, MARKET ANALYSIS, ZONING AND LAND USE REGULATIONS, and ADMINISTRATION. The firm prides itself on providing clients with highly customized and responsive approaches to planning problems.--- Lane Kendig, President of Kendig Keast Collaborative, has more 40 years of experience in planning and growth management. Since receiving a Masters in City and Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina (1968) and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Michigan (1962), Mr. Kendig has successfully worked for regional agencies, counties, cities, towns, and villages. Because of his years of government service, Mr. Kendig is intimately aware of the issues that confront local officials when they face complex and difficult planning decisions. For example, PERFORMANCE ZONING was developed by Mr. Kendig in response to suburban growth problems inadequately dealt with by conventional zoning (Performance Zoning, American Planning Association, 1980).--- Mr. Kendig has served as Chair of the American Planning Association's Environmental Division. He authored the first county environmental plan in Pennsylvania and developed LEGALLY DEFENSIBLE ENVIRONMENTAL AND AGRICULTURAL PRESERVATION REGULATIONS for Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Natural Resources Plan completed under his direction for Lake County, Illinois, won the National Association of Counties Award for Planning. More recently, the firm prepared a model Land Development Code for protecting Florida's Springs and asisted the New Jersey Highlands Council with their plan to protect the State's water resources. Mr. Kendig is a leading advocate for using natural landscape design and applying these principles in designing both large- and small-scale residential, commercial, resort, and mixed-use developments. Kendig Keast Collaborative leads the nation in the use of computers to enhance the productivity of planning.
