Mike Scholl has joined our planning and development staff as a planning and economic development professional. Scholl offers clients two decades of nationwide experience with consultants, community groups, and most recently as economic development manager for the City of Loveland, Colorado. More than five years as a legislative assistant to U.S. congressmen adds to the depth of Scholl’s understanding of planning, from funding through community implementation.
Among Scholl’s areas of experience are strategic planning, downtown redevelopment, brownfield remediation, grant writing, and comprehensive economic development.
Scholl’s responsibilities include research and evaluation of data related to social, housing, economic, population, environmental, and land use trends; developing planning studies and reports; performing plan reviews; preparing permits; researching and analyzing residential and commercial development projects; reviewing and preparing environmental assessments, plans, and documents; and conducting field evaluations and assessments.
“Our urban planning group in the Front Range are over the moon with delight, knowing that Mike will be part of our team assisting public and private clients as they plan for growth,” says Scott Wilson, PSS, vice president. “His urban planning experience, commitment to community economic development, coupled with his easy smile and outgoing personality will serve not only our clients well, but will enhance our already strong group of planning professionals.”
Scholl – who is based in our Fort Collins, Colorado, office – is a certified economic development finance professional. He holds a master of urban planning, a master of public policy, and a bachelor of arts in political science – all from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
