Municipalities: Working with Counties, Cities, Small Towns & Villages

AKRF understands how counties, cities, small towns, and villages work. We have developed a municipal planning practice that provides professional service with sensitivity to local needs and local ways. We also work with counties on broader regional issues.

We work with elected officials and municipal staff to develop strategic solutions that residents and business owners can understand and use to ensure the quality-of-life everyone values.

Small-town life is still a defining element of the American character and spirit--even in New York City with its numerous and distinctive neighborhoods. 

Our project experience includes:

  • Town Planners for numerous Hudson Valley communities such as Town of Dover, Town of Southeast, and Village of Mount Kisco
  • Corridor and Downtown Revitalization plans for Easton, MD; Freeport, NY; Village of Pelham Manor, NY; and Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia, PA
  • Urban Renewal Plans for Wyandanch, NY; Melrose Commons, Bronx, NY; and Downtown Brooklyn, NY
  • Rezoning analyses for the Lower East Side, Manhattan, NY; Willets Point, Queens, NY and Hunter’s Point South, Queens, NY; Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY
  • County-wide planning, zoning, and infrastructure for Broome County, NY; Rockland County, NY; Westchester County, NY; Monmouth County, NJ; and Loudon County, VA.
