“Healthy Places for Healthy People”

By identifying community needs to provide for short and long-term answers, Seneca Scientific Solutions+ will conduct strategic planning sessions that build programs, which create healthy, vibrant, sustainable communities, cities and Tribal Nations. 

Planners forecast and seek prerequisites for the future development, they accommodate for population growth, design for behavior modification, promote revitalization and account for expansion of physical facilities in towns, cities, counties, and metropolitan areas.

Urban and regional planners are visionaries they identify public wishes and develop short- and long-term solutions to account for altering societal norms, new technologies and a changing landscape with environment pressures.  As an area grows or evolves, planners help communities manage the progression related to economic, social, and environmental issues, such as planning new parks, sheltering the homeless, and making the region more attractive to businesses.

When beginning a project, planners often work with public officials, developers, community members, and other groups to identify community issues and goals. Through research, data analysis, and collaboration with interested parties, they strategize to formulate plans to address issues and to meet changing goals.  Planners may also help carry out community plans by overseeing projects, enforcing zoning regulations, and organizing the work of the groups involved.

Urban and regional planners use a variety of tools and technology in their work. They commonly use statistical software, data visualization and presentation programs, financial spreadsheets, and other database and software programs. Geographic Information System (GIS) software is a key tool for planners because they use to integrate data, such as “population density and land use” and can display that information geographically or pictorially.

Urban and regional planners may specialize in areas such as transportation planning, community development, historic preservation, urban design, architectural or engineering design, among other fields of interest.

Planners often collaborate with public officials, civil engineers, environmental engineers, architects, lawyers, and real estate developers.
