The list of topics varies considerably based on the type of development that is proposed. In most cases the provision of water and sewer service, as well as air and water pollution impacts, are important issues. We may also provide recommendations to incorporate design features that will promote active living concepts, such as access to multi-modal transportation options, aging in place, and working, living and recreating in one place. In other cases, subjects such as noise levels, effects of power lines, animal manure management, and prevention of diseases such as West Nile Virus are included in the review.
