Community Planning and Development
“In a small city where we have not had a code update in over twenty years, there were a lot of questions and concerns. Mr. Siegel facilitated the meetings and public hearings and was prepared to answer all questions politely and to the level of understanding of the public. All products were delivered in a timely, responsible, and professional manner. I would recommend his services without reservation.”
