Our Work

We are a small company, but we have a significant impact on the communities we serve!

“I can’t say enough how thankful DPZ is for PEA’s assistance and guidance in the plan’s inception.

We are excited to now have policies and implementing actions for protecting and enhancing flood-impacted Ellicott City and its watershed. PEA helped DPZ lay the groundwork for a very successful multi-year outreach process.”

-Kristin O’Connor,
Chief, Division of Community and Comprehensive Planning, Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning
