Development by Design - Economic Development Plans & Reports

sketchBarth Consulting Group's Development by Design engages the entire community in revitalizing towns by guiding, shaping, creating, and articulating your visions and then developing action plans that turn concepts into reality.

This process begins with your municipal government, then grows outward in concentric circles, engaging the entire community through surveys, town hall meetings, and focus groups, then reaching resolution and adoption.

Historic sensitivity, research and review of your community's evolution, values, and influences helps determine goals that are consistent with a town's unique character and flavor.

Analysis of current economic trends within the community and neighboring economic paradigms are employed to develop an accurate forecast and model. This analysis takes into account geographic attributes such as rail, transportation, employment, housing, attractions, dining, community events and existing business matrices.
