and public landowners value land in many different ways. Our natural
resource and wetlands professionals look closely at each property and
are sensitive to the economic value of land. We carefully consider
each landowner’s long and short-range plans and expectations
for the property, and the owner’s present economic condition.
For site development or clean-up, an evaluation of the natural resources may be necessary. These evaluations could include wetland delineation, endangered species identification and habitat evaluation, habitat mapping and quality evaluation, and ecological risk assessment. L&A can gather this information and evaluate the results. We can then assist you with the avoidance or minimization of impacts to these resources, and guide you through all regulatory coordination and requirements.
We have established wetland mitigation sites throughout the state of
Ohio in various watersheds and are positioned to assist with wellhead/wellfield
protection plans on any level, as water resource issues become more predominant
in Ohio’s small towns and villages. This includes assistance with
data collection programs, data analysis and interpretation, computer
modeling of water resource systems, engineering design and discharge,
and water resource permitting.
Depending on whether the property is publicly or privately owned, the intended use of the property, and the anticipated impacts, an evaluation of the cultural resources may be necessary. If a wetland permit is necessary for a development, one of the requirements may be an archaeological investigation. Similarly, if an old structure or building may be demolished or altered by a development, the historic architectural significance of the structure, the neighborhood, or the viewshed may need to be evaluated. In some cases this evaluation could lead to Tax Credits for the developer. L&A has the staff necessary to critically evaluate any cultural resources, and the experience to carefully guide you through any coordination with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), or other local historic organizations or committees.
With our breadth and depth of experience in natural resources, we see
both the forest and the trees, and begin your project with knowledge
about your needs, goals, challenges and end use before designing a solution.
