LDC has helped us navigate through multiple complex projects in Snohomish County. Their staff is well-versed with all the County’s development codes, which has expedited feasibility studies and limited our exposure through the entitlement process. On our most recent project, Principal Planner at LDC, Clay White, was instrumental in overcoming the surprise challenges placed on us from the local jurisdiction. In addition, their engineers pride themselves on value engineering which has allowed us to limit development costs while not sacrificing the quality of our final product. I would highly recommend the LDC team!
