Who We Are

Who We Are

Crawford & Bowen Planning, Inc. was formed by two experienced environmental planners who saw a need for specialized environmental planning services. Our mission is to provide excellent environmental consulting at the most efficient level, while maintaining the highest standards for quality and legal compliance.


Our environmental compliance strategy is both economically and environmentally sound. Our comprehensive approach to project analysis is based on integration of strategic planning, early identification of issues, constant communication and creative problem solving. Our firm specializes in CEQA documentation for a broad range of projects. We have worked for dozens of jurisdictions over the years and have prepared CEQA documents for several high-profile and contested projects.   Our principals have prepared hundreds of environmental documents over the past 16 years and stay current on the ever changing legal regulations and case law that directs the environmental review process.
