Brown Walker Planners, Inc. provides professional planning services to the public and private sector.

The firm has earned an excellent reputation for having a comprehensive understanding of community needs, combining knowledge of land use planning and innovative growth management practices with a pragmatic approach to implementation. The firm currently employs three professional planners at its office in Newburyport, MA and regularly teams with other experts to provide a broad range of planning-related services. We have been SOMWBE certified in Massachusetts since August, 2011.

In all of our projects we work closely with staff, community volunteers, and elected officials and understand the importance of establishing communication measures that enable transparency and inclusiveness. Our range of services and breadth of experience also enable us to use a comprehensive approach to all of our projects, providing us with perspective on how individual policies and regulatory mechanisms impact (or are impacted by) a community’s entire organizational framework.

We have a commitment to promoting sustainable communities through planning and bring that perspective into every project. We also embrace sustainable practices in our day to day work and operations. To view our statement of sustainable business practices, click here.
