How to begin

What does it cost?

We quote fees based upon the scope of the project and the estimated time it takes to deliver the planning services that we mutually agreed. You receive an estimate in writing before starting any project.

Typical fees for an Initial Planning Project range from $1,800 to $5,400, maybe higher depending upon the complexity.

Annual Update Projects usually cost $600 to $2,400.

Our current hourly rate is $300.

Where do we meet?

For people in the local area, we meet at our offices in Colorado Springs. For folks who reside elsewhere, we can meet virtually using online meeting applications.
