Given the breadth of our experience, NCInstitute prides itself on being able to work with communities to create exciting development frameworks. These framework plans welcome and encourage private investment that is consistent with the community's expressed best interests. Our comprehensive process works for sites from a few blocks in size to thousands of acres; from urban infill to large razed tracts to vulnerable, small towns. We can also provide services that are limited in scope and responsive to a particular community objective.
Our capacities include:
Often a community doesn't want to undertake a comprehensive planning effort, but just seeks a knowledgeable and trustworthy resource with whom to discuss a specific problem that may have a real estate aspect to it. In these instances we can act as a community counselor with a short-term contract (from two hours to two months or more) to meet the specific requirements of our clients. We can help craft a solution or just point the client in the right direction. Topical areas for which NCI can help establish guidelines and program strategies include the following:
NCInstitute's experience in project development and management means we can be an effective educational resource for clients at any stage of the development planning process.
