Planning & Strategic Plans
GRUEL & ASSOCIATES has
extensive experience in the preparation
of comprehensive master plans and strategic
plans ranging from neighborhood plans to
multi-jurisdictional and regional plans.
Our firm prepares plans that are issues
oriented and reality based. All of our plans
are strategic in nature so that they can
serve as road maps for successful implementation.
We also emphasize the use of graphics to
convey ideas and recommendations.
A key component of our master plans is providing
extensive public outreach and consensus
building. It has been our experience that
the planning process is as important as
the final document. Plans without consensus
become documents that gather dust on shelves.
Plans should be comprehensive documents
in which all elements are integrated and
coordinated to achieve the community's goals
Heyer, Gruel & Associates also has demonstrated
expertise in the development of regional
and multi-jurisdictional Master Plans. The
firm prepared the national award winning
Hudson County Urban Complex Strategic Revitalization
Plan, the Hudson County Master Plan and
the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. These
plans were developed in close consultation
with the County, its constituent municipalities,
residents and other interested parties.
They combine a regional perspective with
a local focus.
