In addition to being a real estate professional, I am the Principal of Thomas Planning Resources, a professional consulting firm offering planning services to local government and private companies. I'm a nationally certified land planner by the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), a certification which I have held for eight years. Working for planners and civil engineers over the past eleven years has given me a wealth of information concerning all types of land development, including small and large scale residential, commercial, industrial, mixed use and public facilities. In addition to my AICP certification, I also have a Masters degree in Geography and Planning from West Chester University. Prior to working as a planner I worked as a certified paralegal for several law firms in Chester and Berks Counties, one of which focused on real estate,land use and municipal law.
My 11 years of experience in land planning includes projest involving the design and layout of new residential subdivisions, commercial development projects, and issues related to zoning ordinance requirements, including dimensional standards, setbacks, variances, and ordinance amendments. I have also prepared multi-million dollar construction cost estimates for municipal improvement projects, and have prepared fiscal and environmental impact statements for new residential, commercial and mixed-use development projects.
